The Latest at Kakadu Cooinda Lodge

We are excited to introduce to you the newest offerings at Kakadu Cooinda Lodge’s – five beautiful Yellow Water Villas, tucked away by the Yellow Water Billabong.

Cooinda Lodge is an 100% Indigenous owned operation, with a commitment to ensuring their practices are eco-friendly to protect their land around them. Having already purchased our eco glamping tents 4 years ago, Cooinda decided to go with our Lifting kits and brace kits to elevate each tent and reduce the impact on the ground around them.

A stay at the Yellow Water Villas opens up a world of adventure and exploration. The Spirit of Kakadu Adventure Tours, operating from Cooinda Lodge, takes visitors to many of Kakadu’s most inspiring sites – think cascading waterfalls, tranquil rock pools and legendary landmarks, some of which were brought to life in the iconic Crocodile Dundee films.

This isn’t just camping – it’s glamping at its finest, set in the heart of the mesmerising Kakadu region.

Kakadu has abundant offerings including but not limited to the below:

Immerse in Indigenous Culture

Kakadu is home to Aboriginal people who have lived and nurtured the land for more than 65,000 years, making it a living, breathing tapestry of ancient culture and tradition. The region boasts an abundance of rock art sites like Ubirr and Nourlangie, where visitors can witness magnificent ancient paintings and gain insights into the rich spiritual culture of the Aboriginal people.

Explore Diverse Landscapes

From sweeping floodplains and billabongs to rugged stone country and towering escarpments, the landscapes of Kakadu are incredibly diverse. The region’s iconic wetlands teem with birdlife, making it a paradise for bird-watchers. Meanwhile, adventurous spirits can traverse the challenging terrain to find hidden waterfalls and crystal-clear rock pools, perfect for a refreshing dip.

Experience Unique Wildlife

The Kakadu region is a haven for a wide array of wildlife. It’s home to more than 60 mammal species, over 280 types of birds, and a host of reptiles, including the fearsome saltwater crocodile. Venturing on a Yellow Water Cruise offers a curated view of the region’s rich wildlife, allowing visitors to come face to face with the inhabitants of Kakadu’s wetlands.
