Kakadu National Park
World Heritage listed Kakadu covers an area of nearly 20,000 square kilometres, and is the Australian continent’s largest National Park. Kakadu comprises an incredibly diverse landscape, which ranges through rainforest and forest habitats, mangrove swamps and unspoiled beaches in coastal areas, lowland hills, sprawling flood plains and open woodlands. This makes it the ideal habitat for a huge population of wildlife, from creatures which inhabit the water, traverse the landscape and soar in the skies. Kakadu is home to countless varieties of marine creatures, amphibians, mammals and reptiles including water buffalo and the world’s largest reptilian predator, the saltwater crocodile. It is also home to a plethora of bird species and uncountable different insects and plants.

The composition of the areas provided shelter to the indigenous inhabitants for as many as 65,000 years – and while providing that shelter to its inhabitants, the rock progressively evolved into a type of open air art gallery, with illustrations depicting the deep spiritual culture of those who inhabited the area for so many millennia. A wonderful opportunity to view so many different forms of Aboriginal rock art is provided by driver-led walks around the rock art areas.
