Kakadu National Park

The exotic Kakadu National Park is famous for its large variety of wild life and for the famous rock art of Australia's first inhabitants. The Kakadu National Park is inscripted on the World Heritage List in the catogories of nature and culture.

One third of the Kakadu Nationalpark staff are aborigens. This is because the indigenous inhabitants have leased the land that belongs to them, to the Government in order to make there the National Park.

On the territory of the Kakadu National Park exist uranium mines. However they are not available for visitors of the National Park to explore.
Creeks flow around the plateau, and during the rainfall season there are waterfalls, rushing down the rocks. Here and there in this territory streets become impassible.

Animal lovers come to the Kakadu National Park at their own expense. This territory is inhabited by 25 kinds of frogs, 51 kinds of fish, 60 breeds of mammals and 120 kinds of reptiles. More than that, visitors can observe about 280 kinds of birds and about 10 000 kinds of insects. Some species are considered to be of native fauna. 

The Kakadu National Park is an accessible treasury of rock art. Here one can see more than 5 000 sites of findings, which are from 20 000 to 10 years old. Only two sites are available for visitors – Ubirr and Nourlangie.

The territory of the Park may be explored on foot or from above – on a helicopter.
