Cave paintings, archaeological sites and rock carvings are a recording of the way of life for the region's inhabitants that date back further than the Egyptian pyramids. They show the prehistoric times of the Aboriginal people still living traditionally within the park.
Kakadu is a dual listed UNESO World Heritage site and the biggest National Park within Australia. It is habitat to a diverse and complex ecosystem, rare endemic species of plants (over 2000 plant species and wildlife) and animals, within the floodplains, lowlands, tidal flats and plateaux. The park has had little impact of European settlement unlike most of Australia so it's natural vegetation and landscape has been left unmodified.
