Gagudju Lodge Cooinda is home of Yellow Water in Kakadu National Park
Gagudju Lodge Cooinda spreads beneath a canopy of trees beside Yellow Water Billabong in Kakadu National Park, one of the few World Heritage areas listed for both cultural and natural heritage, and one of the world's great nature reserves.
Kakadu is home to about one third of Australia's bird species and this spectacular natural aviary is well represented at Yellow Water, from the comb-crested Jacana to hawks, eagles and the magnificent Brolga and Jabiru.
Plentiful fish provide a food source - for the large population of crocodiles.
Gagudju Lodge Cooinda is the base for the world renowned Yellow Water Cruises, where crocodiles, birds and occasionally wild horses are seen amongst paperbark forests, pandanus, freshwater mangroves and exotic tropical trees. Fishing charters are also available.
Gagudju Lodge Cooinda offers 48 air-conditioned lodge units, 34 twin share budget rooms, 80 powered camp sites, 300 unpowered sites, petrol station, general store, airport and tour desk. Many local attractions are within easy travelling distance.
The Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre, better known as 'the turtle' is located less than 1km by road or 15 minutes bush walk from the hotel. 'The Turtle' offers a walk- through Aboriginal cultural display area, cinema shows and an Aboriginal arts and crafts shop.
