Kakadu National Park Accommodation
Kakadu Resorts, Hotels, Reviews, Best Rates
This page tells you more about accommodation in Kakadu National Park.
I myself would rather go camping, but if you prefer a nice room over a campsite you can choose from several resorts and hotels in Kakadu. (Want to know more about camping in Kakadu? Go here.)
Here on this page I show you how you can find the best deals on Kakadu accommodation:
Kakadu Accommodation - Finding The Best Deals
Before I list the different Kakadu resorts and hotels I want to explain how you can quickly search the web for the best deals available. It will save you both time and money!
See the little box below? This is not the usual link to a hotel booking site...
It is a search tool. It searches the 30 biggest accommodation booking sites on the web and brings back all the prices for you, so you can make sure you get the best deal available.
There's always someone offering a special deal somewhere! And this tool finds it for you.
When I first found this and started using it I did some testing myself. I compared the prices I found to the prices that the Kakadu hotels offer on their own websites (for the same room and dates, of course).
This tool always brought back at least the same, but usually a better offer. (Over 20% cheaper!)
Needless to say, I was impressed. You can try it out yourself:
- Just enter your chosen dates,
- click "Search"...
- ...and you get taken to a page that lists what Kakadu accommodation is currently available for those dates and the best price for each.
(Page opens in new window.)
If you click on the individual hotels you are shown all prices for that hotel from all booking sites. You can also view more details, photos, a map, traveller reviews and more. And if you click on the best rate, THEN you get taken to the booking site that offers that special deal, so you can lock in that rate while it is still available!

Aurora Kakadu Resort
At the Aurora resort you can get motel rooms, powered and unpowered caravan sites and campsites.. The swimming pool is for guests only. It also has a restaurant (overlooking the wetlands), cafe and store.
The Aurora Resort sometimes offers some really excellent package deals in the off season. The draw back of this resort is that it is located the furthest from the main Kakadu attractions. (It is 212 km from Darwin and 42 km from Jabiru.)

The crocodile shaped building of the Holiday Inn complex is the most famous Kakadu hotel.
It is in a central location in the Jabiru township (only a few kilometres from the airport) and offers hotel rooms, restaurants, a pool for guests and a gift shop. Their main desk also takes bookings for commercial tours.
The Kakady Lodge is situated at the edge of the Jabiru township, so if you don't have transport it's a bit of a walk to the shops. But other than that it's an acceptable, clean, no frills roof over our head!
It offers budget accommodation, cabins, powered caravan sites, camping, barbecue facilities and campers kitchen. The pool is for guests only, the bar/bistro can be used by guests and visitors.
