The biggest and most extensive terrestrial park in Australia can be found in Darwin, specifically in the southeastern part. The Kakadu National Park is one of the country’s top tourist destinations, and we don’t have to wonder why.
Its 20,000 square kilometers of land and water is home to a comprehensive biological and ecological biodiversity, which include a third of Australia’s avian species and a fourth of its fish species. It is also where you’ll find some of the rarest and endemic animals and plants in the planet.
The wildlife is just one of the many things to love about this park. It’s also rich in culture and history, since for 50,000 years, the park was under the care of its traditional owners—the Bininj Mungguy. It’s therefore considered by many as a “living cultural landscape.”Image Source: bcl.com.au
