This is one of Kakadu’s most interesting short walks.
Soak up some stunning views and look out for iconic wildlife as you meander through towering sandstone pillars, small pockets of monsoonal rainforest the paperbark-lined bank of the East Alligator River. A highlight is a cool, shady cave. Bardedjilidji is the local Aboriginal word for walking track or pathway. The name also refers to the roots of waterlilies growing in freshwater swamps and billabongs.
The walk starts at a small carpark 500 m from the upstream boat ramp.
