Click here for park details on My Park List
(Don't confuse this with the All Seasons Frontier Kakadu Village, on the Arnhem Hwy, which is a hotel of the same chain). Jabiru is 254 km east of Darwin and 209 km NE of Pine Creek. The caravan park is to the east of the intersection of Arnhem Hwy (route 36) and Kakadu Hwy (route 36) and on the right along Jabiru Drive, about 500m before the Jabiru town centre.

As per the previous report posted last month, however unpowered sites are available at $16 per person per night so that is a saving of $12 on powered if you are self contained. I also agree that the ablutions can do with a scrub, not just a lick and a promise. We found that there is constant road noise in the mornings before dawn, with tourists doing their things. Might not be an issue if you sleep with your windows closed. No discounts in case you were wondering

This park, which is designed in concentric circles, will not accept advance bookings. They say they don't need to, as it is never full. With over 180 powered sites, heaps of unpowered and about 40 "Dongas" for permanents I'm not surprised its never full. You can choose your own grassy site with shade or sun. It's about 2km to the supermarket, servo., bank and newsagent/post office. Apart from the golf club and sports club that's about it for Jabiru. There is an excellent swimming pool and licenced restaurant right in the middle of the park. Ablution blocks are all over the place. The nearest dump point is 2 or 3 hundred metres down the road to the east. It's a bit disappointing that a place as big as it, does not have one.
