Compare car hire in Jabiru

A new settlement (at least in terms of its modern incarnation), the Northern Territory’s Jabiru was built in 1982 to house people living close to the Ranger Uranium Mine on Jabiru East. Completely surrounded by the beautiful Kakadu National Park, it has a population of just over 1000 and it’s the ideal base for exploring the West Arnhem region as well as the park itself. A hub for Aboriginal art and culture, it’s the traditional land of the Mirarr indigenous clan and a worthwhile stop-off for Aussies and others exploring the Top End.

Guide to Jabiru

A tiny township of only 5 square miles, Jabiru is administered by the West Arnhem Regional Council, whose offices can be found in the town plaza alongside the emergency services and magistrate’s court. It’s a pleasant enough town, with welcoming locals, but its appeal as a tourist destination in its own right is limited ̶ any pleasure seekers here are usually passing through or using it as a launchpad for exploring the Kakadu National Park
