Kakadu National Park

 

World Heritage listed Kakadoo National Park is one of Australia's most prized cultural and ecological treasures.   The 20,000sq kms is 250kms south of Darwin.

The name Kakadu is from the Gagudju speaking people.  The shelters, stone tools, grindstones and ochre indicate that the Aboriginal people have lived in the vicinity now defined by the national park for over 50,000 years.
