Boulder Creek walk

Parks Australia has announced re-opening plans for Kakadu National Park, with visitors to be welcomed into selected sites around the park from Friday, 19 June 2020.

Please visit the website to confirm which sites you will be able to enjoy during your next trip to Kakadu.

. . .

If you are not up to the long walks, Boulder Creek is a nice wet season walk where you may find banded fruit doves and spangled drongos. Take a refreshing dip in the rock pools in the gorge. Plum Tree Creek near the start of this walk is just a sandy creek bed during the dry season. It is named after mindu, the billygoat plum. Birn-birndok (striated pardalotes) and wirrirtwirrirt (rainbow bee-eaters) nest in the banks of this creek.

After passing through open woodland the track leads to Boulder Creek, which is lined with a monsoon forest. Follow the markers over the boulders across the creek and back to the carpark, or detour to the Yurmikmik lookout.

2 kms return | 45 minutes Moderate walk on marked track

A park pass is required to enter Kakadu. Save time on your holiday and purchase your park pass online before leaving home.
