World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park is internationally known and a must see when visiting up north. There is a fantastic variety of landscapes, swarming with wildlife and you can view some of the best examples and highest concentration of accessible Aboriginal rock art sites in Australia.

The park is vast, 250 km by road from Darwin on the Arnhem Highway, and stretches more than 200 km north to south and 100 km east to west. It is on the World Heritage list both for its natural and cultural importance. At its centre is the mining township of Jabiru, the only Australian town to be found located within a national park.

The Mary River side of the national park, near Darwin, is home to millions of birds, with crocodiles and fish in abundance, including the popular Barramundi.
 

To the east of Kakadu National Park is Arnhem Land, which encompasses 91,000 square km, and is home to many Aboriginal people, most of whom continue to practice their traditional customs.
