See the Kakadu of your dreams at Yellow Water, a land-locked billabong brimming with native flora, fauna, and sunsets for postcard-perfect memories.

Yellow Water is a landlocked billabong brimming with native flora and fauna and is one of World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park's best-known landmarks. See the park's wildlife on board a Yellow Water Cruise or during a walk along the boardwalks on the water's edge.

Known as Ngurrungurrudjba, the billabong is located near the small settlement of Cooinda. It is home to crocodiles, wild horses, buffalo and other wildlife. Get out onto Yellow Water as part of a boat cruise for a closer look at a rich variety of wildlife. The vast range of resident birdlife includes jacana, egrets, jabiru, sea eagles, magpie geese and many other native species. Stroll the boardwalk to study the Paperbark forests, pandanus and fresh water mangroves that line the shore. The surface of the billabong is dotted with beautiful pink and white waterlilies. When the waters recede, take the walk across the floodplains to a viewing platform on Home Billabong - a great place to take in an unforgettable Top End sunset.

Call in to the Warradjan Cultural Centre building to find out more about Aboriginal culture. An entry fee of AUD25.00 per person over the age of 16 years is required to enter Kakadu.
