Mary River National Park Camp Sites
This Park is located 150km east of Darwin along the Arnhem Highway. 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.
This Park has many opportunities and places for camping, picnicking, walking, and facilities such as toilets, boat ramps, information and historical markers and commercial accommodation.
Couzen's Lookout camping area offers secluded camping beside the Mary River. It is only a short walk to the lookout where the sunsets are stunning.
Shady Camp is a popular fishing spot with boat ramps, picnic areas and toilets. A viewing platform offers excellent views of the river and its many crocodiles upstream. A barrage helps prevent saltwater entering the freshwater wetlands. Camping is permitted and fees apply
