Kakadu National Park
Located 2 hours southeast of Darwin is Australia’s largest and most famous national park, Kakadu. Kakadu is the size of Slovenia, and has so much to see. Featuring over 5000 sites of ancient aboriginal artwork it is renowned for its rich aboriginal heritage. It features over 280 species of birds, 50 freshwater species, 60 mammals and 10 000 species of insect. Roughly half of the national park is owned by the traditional indigenous custodians and 500 aboriginals live in Kakadu itself, many of whom are traditional owners of the land. It is a truly amazing place to drive through so rent a car online with us and spend some time exploring the rugged wilderness of Kakadu.
