It is about 570 km (by road) northeast of Darwin on the Cobourg Peninsula.  Access is via an unsealed road (4WD only) through Arnhem Land. The roads are usually open in the dry season (May - September), depending on the rains. Roads can be closed for ceremonial reasons with little notice

A permit is required by visitors to stay overnight in the Park, whether you arrive by road, air or sea. Book well in advance especially during the school holiday periods in the dry season. In quieter times, allow two days to process permits. Supply alternative dates if you can.  only 20 vehicle permits to enter the park are issued at any one time.
