The Spirit of Kakadu
Kakadu Tourism is an indigenous owned collection of Kakadu wetland cruises, 4WD Kakadu tours, cultural experiences and Kakadu accommodation. It is the largest collection of facilities catering to tourism in Kakadu and is focused on positive indigenous outcomes.
Kakadu has been home to Australia’s Indigenous people for some 50,000 years tending the land and creating a rich and diverse cultural heritage. The park is home to some of the oldest artworks on the planet. These rock artworks tell the story of the oldest living culture on the planet with galleries found across the parklands. These sheltered rock formations have protected these artworks for thousands of years opening a window into Australia’s distant past, and stories across the millennia.
Kakadu is perhaps known best for its wildlife as one of the largest nature reserves in the world and the largest in Australia. Kakadu is most famous for its crocodiles from their appearance in ‘Crocodile Dundee’ there are thousands of plant and animal species existing in the park.
