Kakadu National Park is a Commonwealth Reserve, nearly 20,000 square kilometres in size and includes the traditional lands of several Aboriginal groups.
You will witness a combination of mangrove fringed coastal areas, expansive flood plains, lowland hills, open woodland and forest habitats that make Kakadu one of the most diverse landscapes you’ll ever experience.
Onward from our stop here, we continue to Nouralngie.
Kakadu is listed as a World Heritage Area because of it’s cultural heritage as well as it’s natural heritage, and you will be mesmerised as you wander the Nourlangie rock art site.
It has provided shelter to the indigenous people for many thousands of years – and while taking shelter, the rock evolved into a canvas that illustrates their very deep spiritual culture.
The 1.5km walk around the base of the rock, led by your Driver Guide, will give you the opportunity to see many different forms of Aboriginal rock art paintings.
After lunch you’ll join your local guide for a cruise on the Yellow Water Billabong. The picturesque yellow waters are home to thousands of saltwater crocodiles and up to 60 species of colourful birdlife. The final stop is at the Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre.
The Bininj people are the traditional custodians of Kakadu National Park and this visit will introduce you to their way of life.
