Video: Hiking trails of Kakadu National Park
Kakadu isn’t known for its hiking, but there’s a surprising number of trails through this stunning country
Overnight bushwalks in Kakadu are typically across the ‘stone country’ of the Arnhem Land escarpment. Routes are unmarked and overnight treks require a permit. Applications must include details of the route and campsites, as well as a marked-up topographic map. Information about bushwalking experience is required, and a satellite phone, Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) or Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) must be carried. Applications must be lodged seven days in advance, and permits aren’t issued to solo walkers.
