For a unique experience – see Kakadu this wet season

Heavy rain continues to fall across the Top End heralding the start of Gudjewg, Kakadu’s breathtaking monsoon season.  Around November each year we have to close Jim Jim Falls and Twin Falls because of rising water levels, but the tropical downpours trigger plenty of excitement in other parts of the park.

A visit to Kakadu during Gudjewg gives you the opportunity to enjoy experiences not available during drier months. The floodplains are full, waterfalls are flowing and the native vegetation is green and lush. Dramatic storms and sunsets are also common at this time of year.
