Kakadu National Park

Kakadu National Park is a timeless place. It is recognised as a global treasure, World Heritage listed for both its environment and our living Aboriginal culture. We are the largest national park in Australia, covering almost 20,000 square kilometres. That’s nearly half the size of Switzerland! - See more at: http://www.parksaustralia.gov.au/kakadu/people/about-kakadu.html#sthash.4GmXo81S.dpuf
