Kakadu National Park

Connect with the oldest living culture on earth. The rugged and remote beauty of Kakadu has stories to share that will take your breath away and touch your heart.

In Australia’s biggest national park you will find ancient landscapes with thundering waterfalls, lush rainforests, wandering wetlands, exotic wildlife and ancient rock art.

Covering nearly 20,000 square kilometres, Kakadu National Park is a World Heritage listing renowned for both its cultural and natural values.

See breathtaking horizons from the top of a Kakadu escarpment. Cruise on the stunning Yellow Water Billabong to spot crocodiles and wildlife in their natural habitat, including millions of migratory birds who in-part call the park’s wetlands home.

Not only is Kakadu spectacular but you can feel yourself come alive among the lush rainforests, rocky gorges, serene swimming pools and the oldest Indigenous rock art in the world.

With more than 5,000 Aboriginal rock art sites in the park, the Bininj/Mungguy people have called Kakadu home for some 65,000 years. Here they’ll teach you about their ancient culture and the regions’ dramatic seasons.

Only three hours’ drive from Darwin, Kakadu National Park has been waiting for you.
