Walking is a great way to experience Kakadu. There are many walks throughout the park, including a wide variety of short and easy day walks as well as some longer, more challenging full day walks for those who are fit. Check seasonal access.
Extended overnight bushwalks are also available. however these require a high level of experience and can be far more physically demanding. For these reasons, a permit is required for anyone wishing to do an overnight bushwalk. Advance planning is essential, as is the ability to navigate using a topographic map and a compass. The routes are unmarked, and extend through remote and rugged country with variable climatic conditions.
It is important to prevent dehydration. Make sure you always take plenty of water.
