Surprising to many, Kakadu National Park, in fact, stays open all year round. The drier months are usually the most popular times to visit Kakadu; however, Kakadu can be spectacular in Top End’s Wet Season, which runs between November and April.
During this season Kakadu National Park can be drenched by up to 1.5 metres of rain. That’s enough to blanket roughly one-third of the park in floodwaters.
Monsoonal rains drain off the Arnhem Land Plateau and inundate Kakadu’s floodplains. Abundant waterfalls cascade over rugged sandstone stacks as they fill the lush, freshwater wetlands that attract up to 3 million waterbirds each year. Kakadu National Park is home to about one-third of Australia’s 800-plus bird species and one-quarter of the continent’s land mammals!
To accommodate this change in weather, Kakadu Air have updated flights and have released their Wet Seasons flight times (November-April) 2021/2022
