This camp site offers secluded camping beside the Mary River. It is only a short walk to the lookout where the sunsets are stunning. The Mary River National Park consists of a collection of small reserve areas which protects part of the Mary River catchment. The Mary River is one of eight rivers in the Top End which have large floodplains in their catchments. The Arnhem Highway crosses five of these eight rivers as you travel between Darwin and Jabiru.
This Park is located 150 km east of Darwin along the Arnhem Highway.
The most comfortable time to visit is during the Dry Season, from May to September.
In the Dry Season, from May to September, most areas are accessible to all vehicles, however many roads are unsealed.
During the Wet Season, from October to April, flooding can cause road closures.
Please note: GPS Co-Ordinates are approximate and provided in most cases to get you to the National Park entrance. Once inside the park there should be signs to the actual camp grounds. Failing this please check with National Parks for further directions.
