Kakadu is Australia’s largest National Park and a World Heritage site. It is 170 kilometres/105 miles south east of Darwin and to give an idea of how large it is, the park is half the size of Switzerland. It extends 200 kilometres/120 miles north to south and 100 kilometres/60 miles east to west with a variety of landscapes - plateaus, escarpments, floodplains, gorges, chasms, forests, swampland and waterfalls, all to be enjoyed on an Australia vacation.

Within the park are 280 species of birds, 60 of mammals, 127 of reptiles and 1600 of plants. One popular feature is the crocodile of which there are two types, the freshwater and the saltwater.

There is a large concentration of ancient aboriginal Rock Art that are the best examples in Australia, over 5000 in total and which depict various subjects such as hunting spiritualism etc.

It is possible to take a cruise along the Guluyambi River or East Alligator River and learn about the culture and nature of Kakadu from an indigenous perspective while at the same time, watch wallabies and kangaroos jumping around. Another way to view Kakadu on trips to Australia  is to take a scenic flight and obtain a bird’s eye view of the park with all its diversity. One can also journey into the bush by 4WD, go bushwalking or boating.

Although a little more difficult to get to, at Goway we feel that one of our Kakadu tours on an Australian vacation is a great way to truly experience the flora and fauna of Austraila. It's is an experience not soon to be forgotten. C’mon say G’day Downunder. Book one of our Australia vacations today and start exploring!
