Le Parc national Kakadu, qui couvre près de 20 000 kilomètres carrés de beauté naturelle exceptionnelle et de biodiversité unique, abrite une faune abondante, d’importants sites d’art rupestre aborigènes, ainsi que des paysages diversifiés et exotiques.

Il a ainsi été inscrit au patrimoine mondial pour ses valeurs culturelle et naturelle.

Kakadu regorge de beauté naturelle et abrite une faune native abondante.

Le peuple Bininj/Mungguy vit à cet endroit et l’aime depuis 50 000 ans. Vous pourrez vous émerveiller face aux œuvres d’art rupestre prolifiques du parc et vous imprégner de l’une des présences les plus longues d’un groupe de personnes sur Terre.

Au cours de votre exploration, vous verrez un échantillon de plus de 2 000 espèces de plantes, un quart des espèces de poissons d’eau douce d’Australie et plus d’un tiers de ses oiseaux, qui résident dans le parc. Vous pourrez vous joindre à une croisière pour découvrir des crocodiles marins et faire chauffer votre appareil photo au lever et au coucher du soleil. Mettez-vous au défi de suivre l’un des réseaux étendus de pistes pour 4x4 et de promenades dans le bush.
