Kakadu Billabong Safari Camp

8 sites · RVs, Tents50 acres · Jabiru, NT
Kakadu Billabong Safari Camp is a 100% owned and operated Aboriginal business. Visitors are welcome to book either the Safari style tents, or a campsite to pitch a tent or park an RV. We also host different festivals and cultural immersion programs throughout the year. Kakadu Billabong is a series of billabongs along the Jim Jim river system that become a series of permanent bodies of water on Murumburr Clan country. Murumburr Traditional Owners of the land provide a beautiful spot where visitors and their families can just get away and be off the grid so to speak and enjoy some healing time on country and catch up with Life. Billabongs is what we call a permanent body of water that transforms to a bare minimum at the end of the dry season still enough water to provide a yearly supply to animals far and wide or at least up to 50 kilometres away. We have many billabong locations to choose from including small wetlands where visitors can just soak up the beautiful peace and surrounds and the beautiful settings in and around the rivers and billabongs as they recede over the dry season to dry creek beds.

Caravan parks near Jabiru guide


The small town of Jabiru is completely surrounded by the Kakadu National Park and is the major tourist service town for the national park. Campers can use Jabiru as a base for exploring the park, staying at a tent or caravan site or in a cabin at a campsite in the town and making use of facilities including supermarkets, restaurants, tour operators, and swimming pools. Alternatively, use Jabiru as a starting point to plan camping trips deeper into the national park, at campsites that are wilder and less thoroughly serviced.

Where to go

Jim Jim Billabong

South-west of Jabiru along the highway, this unserviced campsite is suitable for tents and caravans, and is equipped with toilets, fire pits, and a boat ramp. Fishing for barramundi is especially popular here. Jim Jim Billabong doesn’t provide drinking water but it’s close to Cooinda, where there are some facilities, including the Cooinda Lodge Kakadu.


South of Jabiru along the Jim Jim Falls Road, the Karnamarr Campground offers easy access to the popular Jim Jim Falls and Twin Falls, which are great spots to visit in any season. It’s on the edge of the Arnhem Land Escarpment and there are sweeping views across the landscape. There are good facilities here, including drinking water, flushing toilets, and hot showers.

Waldak Irrmbal (West Alligator Head)

Northwest of Jabiru along a four-wheel-drive track is the only beach campground in the Kakadu National Park, and it’s very remote and infrequently visited: ideal for adventure seekers. There are pit toilets and fire pits, and the site is suitable for tents and camper trailers. You’re not allowed to drive along the beach itself, so park up at the campground and check out the beach on foot.

When to go

There are two main seasons around Jabiru and the Kakadu National Park: the wet season (November to March) and the dry season (April to October). Peak tourist season is the dry season, when temperatures are cooler. This is the busier time of year but all facilities will be open. While you can travel to Jabiru in the wet season, camping in the Kakadu National Park beyond the town might be difficult or inadvisable due to heavy rain and flooding in some areas.
