“Couldn't fault it”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

The Kakadu Lodge was fantastic. We got a lodge which had a bed, fridge and aircon and the bathroom block was just outside. It was all really clean. The pool and bistro area was really good.
The staff were just incredible - really went out of their way to help us.
Great value!
The location was a really convenient spot for exploring all over Kakadu.

On a recent trip to the Top End, we had the pleasure to stay here at Kakadu Lodge. We stayed in an on-site cabin and it was great. Comfortable beds, air conditioning and well equipped. The pool was wonderful, as were the bar and the restaurant. The meals were to 'die for'! The staff, especially in Reception were very friendly and helpful ... even if I was a Hawthorn supporter! We were advised about places to visit and things to do which made our stay in Kakadu something we will treasure always.

Room Tip: On site cabins are fantastic value.

Lovely setting. We really enjoyed the billabong style pool and relaxing poolside bar and cafe.The food was great. We also enjoyed the free ranger talk in the evening. We stayed at the end of the dry and the park was humming but not crowded which was lucky for us.
We had a cabin which was neat, well equipped, quiet, very clean and the bed was comfortable. We liked the BBQ at the back.
It was a terrific base to launch from and had all we needed and a lovely green space around the pool to relax in after the heat of the day.
Staff were friendly and helpful. Lots of hints about the best sights and times to visit. (like Ubirr rocks at sunset). I'd recommend it and the price was reasonable in comparison to other accomodation I sourced in Kakadu. Sal and Col

Lovely accommodation, much more than we expected to find. Cabin was small but very clean and comfortable, had everything required. Pool was large and clean, meal by the pool was very relaxing after a long day.

Room Tip: Great bakers nearby.

We visited towards the end of the season and thee was plenty of choice of sites (All nice a grassy - Which after a few weeks of stopping in dust bowls is heaven) - the pool had plenty of custom but never felt crowded. And we had enough room for a run with a football with the kids - luxury : )

There was a couple of school trips in which broke the peace a little (No trouble - just high spirits) - Given its such a large site if was good to see good facilities but I'd dread to visit when full and you'd struggle to get a toe in the water - thankfully not a worry we had.

Staff in reception were very friendly and helpfull.

I'm sure in reality visitors will balance what they are there to do - Fishing, Arnhem Land, Boat tours etc. with timing and all the other factors that make a great trip Bugs - Temperature - Rain etc.

We left hapy we'd stayed.

Room Tip: If we stayed again we'd ask when checking in if any schools were coming through and where in the...

Thank you for choosing to stay at Kakadu Lodge. It was pleasing to read your feedback on our property. Our staff were pleased to receive your positive comments.
Kakadu Lodge is a large property sprawling over 10 hectares. Even during the height of our peak season (first week of July) we are able to accommodate all of our guests comfortably. When we have large group numbers on the property our reception staff inform all of our independent travelers of where the groups are camping, so that they can make an informed decision on where they may end up choosing to camp.
The seasons in Kakadu are truly diverse and each season offers something unique. During the colder months (May- September) people generally find the pool only fit for polar bears as the water is quite chilly early in the morning and late in the afternoon. During the day most of our visitors are our exploring the vast wonders that Kakadu has to offer, as a result the pool is rarely crowded, contrary to your assumptions.
We look forward to seeing you again at Kakadu Lodge

Stayed two nights in a cabin which was small, comfortable, clean and simple - all the things you need in a place to stay after a day of adventure. On-site bistro had a good range of meals on offer. The reception staff were excellent. Spoke to three different ladies who gave me some great advice on local tours and also made the bookings for us and processed payment, all no fuss. Really appreciated their advice as we wanted to make the best of our time. We'll be back again.

The staff were an excellent source of information to assist with choosing and booking tours suitable for families around Kakadu. We ended up on the Animal Tracks Safari.
The kids loved the large pool. There is a great pool side area for relaxing. Our cabin was basic but clean.
