See for yourself the heritage-listed rugged escarpments, lush wetlands, cascading waterfalls, and Aboriginal art of Australia's largest national park.

Covering nearly 20,000 square kilometres of exceptional natural beauty and unique biodiversity, Kakadu National Park is teeming with wildlife, home to important Aboriginal rock art sites, and takes in diverse and exotic landscapes. This has earned it a World Heritage listing for both its cultural and natural values. Kakadu is a wild place, and its landscapes undergo spectacular changes throughout the year.

Bininj/Mungguy people have lived on and cared for this country for 50,000 years. Come to marvel at some of the park's prolific rock art, and get a sense of one of the longest historical records of any group of people on earth. As you explore you will see a sample of the more than 2,000 plant species, a quarter of Australia's freshwater fish species and more than a third of its birds that are resident in the park. Join a cruise to see saltwater crocodiles, and go mad with the camera at sunrise and sunset. Challenge yourself to tackle one of the extensive network of four-wheel drive and bushwalking trails.

Kakadu is three hours' from Darwin on the Nature's Way tourism drive. An entry fee of AUD25.00 per person over the age of 16 years is required.
