If you do require a permit please use the following application form.
If you are looking at holding an event within Kakadu National Park, you may require a license. Please download and read the Event Guidelines and use the form below to register your interest.
The use of remote piloted aircrafts (RPAs), including drones, within Kakadu National Park is prohibited except in accordance with a management plan or a permit issued by the park. Permits are not issued for recreational drone use, but applications for RPA use within the park will be considered for commercial or research purposes. Permits issued by the Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife Commission for other NT Parks are not valid in Kakadu.
In most instances, proposals for commercial image capture by drones will not be approved, but drone use may be considered for high-profile projects that have been approved by the Kakadu Board of Management and Kakadu’s traditional owners.
If you believe that your project may qualify, contact the Permits Officer.
Apply well in advance
