Kakadu National Park


Moline Rockhole is a special permit area in which only a few select operators are permitted to access, guaranteeing minimal crowds. The small waterfall and waterhole below the falls offer a great place to cool down, snorkel and explore the underwater home to various species, including fish and turtle.

Ubirr Rock One of Kakadu's best-known rock-art sites and also famously featured in the movie Crocodile Dundee. A walk to the top offers sweeping views across the Nadab floodplain.
