Kakadu National Park is a vast nature reserve in the state Northern Territory. The borders of Kakadu National Park are located 100 kilometres east of Darwin.
Kakadu National Park is one of Australia’s northernmost national parks, and it is roughly the same size as Israel or Slovenia. The main features of this area are fiery red rock walls, Aboriginal art, and expansive wetlands. With so many natural backdrops, there’s obviously heaps of activities to do!
The Ubirr Rock Art and the East Alligator River are two of the park’s eye-catchers and can be visited during a day tour of Kakadu National Park. If you have more time to dive deeper into the national parks’ treasures, the 2-day Kakadu tour takes you to more hidden spots. A traditional barbecue and 4WD adventures complete the authentic Aussie experience!
The stunning Koolpin Gorge and Jim Jim Falls aren’t on most visitors’ itineraries, but you can witness these gems of nature during an overwhelmingly spectacular 5-day 4-night tour of the Kakadu National Park. Meet the Aussie crocs during a river cruise and find refreshment in the countless waterholes!
Litchfield National Park is relatively close to Kakadu National Park. Here, you can see crashing waterfalls, gorges, and rock formations. Experience the allure of both Litchfield and Kakadu National Park on a tour that takes you on an adventure filled with cruises, waterfalls, and walks along with stunning scenery.
The cultural value of Kakadu National Park is also significant. In this area, you can get a real sense of Aboriginal art and history. You can learn more about the culture of the indigenous Australians in the Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre, and the historic rock paintings at Ubirr and Nourlangie. You can visit these outstanding sites during the Dragonfly Dreaming Kakadu tour which starts in Darwin.
Arnhem Land is yet another awe-inspiring place in the north of Australia, not far from Kakadu National Park. The majority of the inhabitants of Arnhem Land is of Aboriginal origin, and a tour of Kakadu and Arnhem Land combines both cultural experiences and striking nature.
