Yellow Water, Kakadu National Park

4.8
#5 of 13 in Wildlife in Kakadu National Park
Situated in the center of Kakadu National Park, Yellow Water allows you to explore World Heritage-listed wetlands and discover living indigenous cultures. A guided boat cruise is the best way to see the dramatic scenery and a variety of wildlife, including huge saltwater crocodiles and a number of bird species. If you have a private boat, this part of the floodplain is a first-class fishing spot. A stroll down the boardwalk, when the waters recede, also provides incredible views of the billabong. To escape the daily heat, visit the cultural center, where you can admire Aboriginal arts and crafts.

  • What a wonderful experience. So many shades of green during a wet season cruise. Our guide, Dennis, was informative and entertaining. He had a wonderfully relaxed way of imparting his knowledge. Thank you
  • We had a fantastic (16:30) cruise with Reuben in the Wet Season. Reuben was extremely informative, and he seemed to have a sixth sense for when animals were near (as well as zoom-vision to identify animals in the distance). He was great fun, and the nature on this cruise is just fantastic (crocs right up near the boat, kingfishers, sea eagles, a pig, a jabiru, etc!). The cruise was one of our highlights of our 5 weeks in Australia, and extremely good value. We highly recommend it.
