How Long Does It Take To Drive Around Kakadu?

Do you need a 4 wheel drive in Kakadu?

We'll be honest, to access the best parts of Kakadu National Park, a 4WD is essential. Many great spots are accessible in a 2WD. However, you won't be able to access any waterfalls, gorges or swimming holes as they are all located on unsealed roads. If visiting in the wet season 4WDs must also be fitted with a snorkel.

Can you drive a campervan in Kakadu?

The Top End is fine for campervans in the dry season. Large sealed roads (Arnhem and Kakadu highways), and many 2WD friendly dirt roads. Kakadu is so large, you've got little towns/camping+shops areas in it, and big roads to connect them.

Is the road to Jim Jim Falls sealed?

Located at the south end of Kakadu National Park, the road to the imposing waterfall is unsealed and corrugated. It's called Jim Jim Road. It's in good conditions up to the camping area, and then 10 km of 4WD only track. The last 10 kilometres of track includes areas of soft sand.
