It is allowed but it is extremely difficult to get a permit, most permits are turned down.Unless you have a reptile park or zoo or are a renowned hertapologist you really have no chance.I dont even think about it although i would love to.Even for the reptile park owners and zoo ppl it isnt a straight forward procedure, australia likes to protect its native animals.If any of you want to see Kakadu national park in its glory, you better make it quick, its being invaded by the cane toad which is wiping out many species of reptiles and other animals, even our most deadly snakes are no match for the cane toad.So in some instances it is good at what the national wildife and parks ppl are doing, in some ways it is bad.If i were them i would get many of the wild reptiles out of kakadu and setup breeding until the cane toad problem is controlled, otherwise we may lose many colonies of snakes, monitors and lizards.

cheers
