Discover ancient rock art
Kakadu’s rock art is recognised as some of the longest existing historical records in the world. With more than 5000 art sites within the Park, there is plenty to explore. The Nanguluwurr Gallery takes you on a 4km journey through woodlands with rock art depicting first contact during colonisation. Visit Ubirr, one of Kakadu’s most prolific art sites, and Burrungkuy (Nourlangie) for easy access to see some amazing rock art and learn about the traditional ways of Aboriginal living.
Spot local wildlife
Kakadu is a thriving environment, home to variety of wildlife, including one-fifth of Australia’s mammals and over one-third of the country’s bird species. The wetlands habitat is internationally recognised as a significant site for migratory birds. From dawn, watch the wallabies making their first movements; discover lizards of all shapes and sizes; and keep an eye out for wild horses while you explore the Park.
Free ranger guided activities
During the dry season activities are held daily including art site talks, walks, cultural activities and slide shows. Gain insight into the life and culture of the local Bininj and Mungguy people who continue using traditional methods and help protect and maintain the Park.
