Kakadu National Park

Kakadu’s biodiversity is internationally recognised in its listing as a World Heritage Area.

It’s an astonishing landscape, home to more than 2,000 plant species, around one third of all Australian bird species and about one-fifth of all Australian mammals.

Some of these charismatic animals are threatened or endangered. Some aren’t found anywhere else in the world, and there are still others yet to be discovered.

Kakadu’s landscapes change dramatically from one end of the park to the other, encompassing mangrove-lined coastlines, sweeping stone country and seemingly endless floodplains and wetlands.

The savanna woodlands and lowlands, which make up about 80 percent of the park, are home to a huge variety of plants and animals.
