Cooinda: gateway to Kakadu adventure 

Cooinda: gateway to Kakadu adventure 

In partnership with Ngurrungurrudjba (Yellow Water) Campground and Caravan Park

Cooinda is Kakadu’s camping and caravanning oasis in the heart of the national park’s spectacular landscape. 

Located on the shores of Yellow Water Billabong, a stay at Cooinda Lodge and Camping Grounds puts you in prime position for one of Australia’s greatest natural spectacles, with the wetlands landscape a veritable Noah’s Ark: home to hundreds of bird varieties, kangaroos, brumbies, buffaloes, and of course, massive crocs taking centrestage. 

Cooinda Lodge has been a haven for tourists for over 50 years, with its shady trees providing a cooling canopy for caravanners and campers. 

With petrol bowsers, a general store, two swimming pools, great dining and bars, modern amenities blocks, walking trails around the billabong, and access to some of Kakadu’s best fishing, Cooinda provides the ultimate base for adventure.  

Yellow Water Cruises operates from dawn to dusk, while Kakadu’s ‘icon’ attractions – including Warradjan Cultural Centre, Nourlangie (great rock art), Maguk waterfall and natural swimming pool, Jim Jim and Twin Falls – are all within easy driving distance. Spirit of Kakadu four-wheel driving adventures also offers guided tours from Cooinda. 

Cooinda offers powered and unpowered sites, along with glamping and lodge rooms.
