Kakadu National Park
Covering nearly 20,000 square kilometers Kakadu National Park is a place of exceptional beauty, great biodiversity, and a wide variety of habitats and wildlife. There are a number of impressive waterfalls to see like Twin and Jim Jim Falls, the impressive Nourlangie Rock formation, termite cathedral mounds, among much, much more. The park is home to dozens of mammals, reptiles, over 2,000 plants, and 10,000 species of insects. Made famous by the movie Crocodile Dundee, Kakadu is also well known for its abundance - more than 5,000 - of Aboriginal rock art sites; but the real stars of the show are the saltwater crocodiles. Come face to face - well maybe not that close - with a giant saltwater crocodile, perhaps its most famous resident. These living relics of the prehistoric era can grow to over 6 meters (20 ft) and weigh upto 1,300 kilograms (2,900 lb) and are perhaps nature's ultimate killing machine. Kakakdu is a major tourist attraction in Australia's north and is easily accessible by highway. There are many tours and scenic flights available. Camp out in the park or stay in nearby Jabiru, which has several accommodation options, including the Crocodile Hotel, which is actually shaped like a reptile!
