The Bowali visitors center is located about five kilometers from Jabiru and provides a great travel guide for Kakadu. The center contains a wealth of information about Kakadu including videos, library and a display. If driving yourself the visitor center is a great starting point with attractions like Yellow Water and Nourlangie Rock, which is famous for its rock art, are both located quiet close by. There are many ways to visit Kakadu National Park. Many people take a day tour from Darwin and we have a host of these available in this website. Extended tourist accommodated tours are also available. Another option is to hire a vehicle or campervan and do it in your own time. Weather conditions can play a part especially during the wet season and access to some parts of the park can be restricted. Areas like Jim Jim Falls require four wheel drive vehicles as the road is unmade and can be subject to flooding. Another fantastic way to see Kakadu is to take a scenic flight as the park is absolutely spectacular from the air.
