    No You don't. There are plenty of places to hire a 4WD (and trust me, you'll need one) and you can share the costs by putting notices up in any of the travel hostels. Couple of things to keep in mind: the 4WD's have huge excesses if you damage them (think your up for the first $5,000) and don't use the word 'tour' in any notice you put ip - the locals can be very sensitive - use the word 'trip' instead almost 11 years ago

    There are a few places you can go in Kakadu without a 4WD, but as Simon says (lol), a 4WD is the best option. When renting one, be sure to go over it with a fine-tooth comb for any damage (companies usually ask you to do this prior to taking the vehicle) and take note of it either on the supplied form or in a notebook, and get somebody from the company to sight and sign it before you leave. Also make sure to check oil, water and the spare tyre. It may seem like stuff that the company should take care of, but not all are as responsible as you might think; the last thing you want to do is break down in the middle of nowhere!)

    Places like Britz, Hertz and Avis all have 4WDs for hire; shop around for the best deal. almost 11 years ago
