Overview

Highlights

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 rich in natural beauty and has an abundance of native wildlife. Bininj/Mungguy people have lived on and cared for this country for 65,000 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.

Kakadu is three hours from Darwin on the Nature's Way tourism drive. Save time on your holiday and purchase your Kakadu park pass online before you leave home.
