Picture yourself here today!

Kakadu is often referred to as a living cultural landscape, and with access to wetlands, sandstone escarpments, waterfalls, swimming holes, rivers, and wildlife … it’s no wonder why.

Aboriginal people have occupied the Kakadu region continuously for at least 65,000 years making them the oldest living culture on earth.  Some of Kakadu’s oldest paintings are over 20,000 years old – keep your eyes open for some early paintings of the tall ships that first brought Europeans to this land.

Kakadu is BIG!  Over 20,000 square kilometres and nearly half the size of Switzerland.  Kakadu National Park is home to more than 10,000 crocodiles, 280 different types of birds and around 2,000 different types of plants.

The landscape changes dramatically as you drive from one part of Kakadu to another.
