Travel Destination Kakadu
There is a Wealth of Natural and Aboriginal Rock Art and Cultural Sites in Travel Destination Kakadu
Kakadu National Park is absolutely huge, being some 200 Kms (120 miles) north to south and 100 Kms (60 miles) east to west, covering an area of 19,084 Sq.Km (7,646 Sq. Miles). Travel Destination Kakadu has a warm monsoonal climate and has both “Wet” and “Dry” seasons, as does Darwin. The climate and weather are very much the same as Darwin.
Aboriginal Rock Art: Ubirr, Nourlangie Rock and Nanguluwur are the most famous, and can be visited with guides or on tours.
Mammals: Many mammals are nocturnal, but expect to see Wallabies, Kangaroos, Dingoes and Water Buffalo in the wild.
Birds: Over 280 species of birds, including a number of endangered and vulnerable species have made Travel Destination Kakadu an Important Bird Area as listed by Birdlife International.
Reptiles: The introduction of Cane Toads to Kakadu has severely impacted the native reptile population. Lizards, including the Frill Necked Lizard (an Australian icon), Goannas, saltwater and freshwater Crocodiles and Snakes can still be seen. Most snakes are nocturnal, not being able to withstand the noontime heat.
Insects: As you would expect in a warm moist climate, there are plenty of bugs. The huge termite mounds in the southern end of Travel Destination Kakadu are the most visible evidence of insect populations.
