Located less than 3 hours from Darwin, Australia’s largest National Park - Kakadu National Park is your gateway to explore Aboriginal rock art sites and exotic landscapes teeming with wildlife. Explore on foot, join a cruise or guided tour, spot crocs and birdlife, swim in waterfalls, and discover an ancient and fascinating local Aboriginal culture.
DO Wetland magic
Explore Kakadu's internationally recognised wetlands and discover mangroves and paperbark trees teeming with rare and beautiful birdlife. The famous Mamukala wetlands come alive in the dry season as thousands of migratory magpie geese flock to its cool waters.
DO Savannah Woodlands
Explore savannah woodlands that make up 80% of Kakadu's landscape. These seemingly quiet regions support a greater variety of plants and animals than any other habitat in the park and feature some of Australia's last expanses of virgin eucalypt forest.
Walking tracks have got Kakadu covered. The adventurous can tackle the 12 kilometre Barrk Sandstone walk, passing through the Main Gallery of Aboriginal rock art before meeting the stone country of Nourlangie Rock.
