National Park.

Australia’s largest National Park
Covering an area half the size of Switzerland, the Kakadu National Park anchors a
broad ecological and biological diversity to the tropical landscapes of Australia’s Top
End.

Water-lily dotted billabongs, open woodland, rocky outcrops and monsoon rainforests –
it’s a truly spectacular region home to one quarter of Australia’s freshwater and
estuarine fish species, about 2000 types of plants, and rare wildlife such as the
Leichardt’s grasshopper.

Bird watchers will rejoice with an astonishing 280 different bird species to look for. For

Parks Australia also has concise information about Kakadu wildlife, geology and
Aboriginal culture.

Did you know? Kakadu is home to more than 10,000 crocodiles! Freshwater crocodiles
grow up to 3 metres long, while the big guys ‘the salties’ (saltwater crocodiles) can
sprout to 6 metres in length.

Spiritual and cultural significance
The traditional Aboriginal Bininj/Mungguy people have lived on and cared for the lands
for more than 50,000 years.

Adventures Beyond will show you these sacred lands so you can share in the spiritual
connection with the oldest living culture on earth.

Aboriginal art Kakadu

Aboriginal art
One of the reasons for Kakadu’s World Heritage status is the Aboriginal rock art, with
some paintings up to 20,000 years old.

Art subjects include religious ceremonies, creation stories, sorcery and hunting.
Paint was created by crushing mineral pigments and mixing with water. Ancient
brushes were crafted from reeds, feathers, sticks and human hair.

Today, the Bininj/Mungguy people continue to paint on bark, fabric, canvas and paper
and their art allows them to express their cultural identity.
