Owned in conjunction with the people who have long lived on the land, Kakadu is indicative of the diverse landscape of the Northern Territory. It is also a place of true archeological significance, with the most aboriginal rock art found anywhere in the world (the most popular being Nourlangie Rock and Ubirr). There are also numerous natural wonders and exceptional biodiversity. With over 13,000 species of flora and fauna through sprawling woodlands to Monsoon forests, any trek through Kakadu is worthwhile, although Jim Jim Falls is a definite highlight. A park pass is necessary for entrance and can be purchased at the park office or online for $25 (as of this writing).
