Mahbilil Festival 2017 is held at the Jabiru Pool (Civic Drive). Jabiru is 300km from Darwin along the Arnhem Highway with a good sealed road all the way.
It is the gateway to Kakadu and an excellent base from which to explore the Park, the rock art at Ubir, Yellow Waters cruise and the various other natural wonders of the region.
