Walking is a great way to experience Kakadu. There are many marked walks throughout the park, including a wide variety of short and easy day walks as well as some longer, more challenging full day walks to be experienced without a permit. You will need to apply for a permit if you want to do overnight bushwalks, or bushwalk in unmarked remote areas (off-track bushwalking). Please note permits will not be issued to solo walkers.

Before applying for a permit please check that the following closure dates don't affect you:
