Kakadu National Park, Northern Territory

A short trip through Kakadu.

When we were in Darwin for a wedding, we took a day trip to the Kakadu National Park. It has been developed a lot since I was last there like 30 years ago! Good roads, good tourist info, and especially good Aboriginal tours now available. Our trip up the Yellow River had a wonderful commentary. The sights were awesome. I'll share some with you.



Aboriginal Rock Art



The caves where the rock art is found



Wildlife watching on the Yellow River. The guides are aboriginal and it's an aboriginal-owned company.



Jabiru in the wetlands



Brave bloom in the wilderness



Aren't the little ducks cute?

Jaiburu, the NT's national bird, is everywhere.

Please leave a comment and tell me what you think.

Love these photos and the tour around Darwin. The best I have seen is the airport so it was interesting to go further afield. Diane
