Delve deep into Australia’s natural history at Kakadu National Park, the country’s largest national park. Situated in the Northern Territory’s Top End and just three hours from Darwin, the park boasts dual World Heritage Site listings and more than 65,000 years of Aboriginal history of what is considered the oldest living culture on earth. With something for every type of explorer, Kakadu has crystalline ponds, tumbling waterfalls, and otherworldly, limestone escarpments, prime for hiking, camping, or glamping. A visit can include viewing rock paintings, spotting some of the unique birds, fishing for barramundi, soaring above the landscape in a light aircraft, or photographing the crocodiles that lurk in the wetlands. Home to over 75 different species of reptiles and a third of Australia’s bird population, the wildlife diversity is unparalleled. And yes, if you want to see kangaroos, you’ll find an abundance of them waiting to meet you.
