Well I'm not sure about the others myself, but Kakadu is pronounced:

Ka (short a sound, as in 'cat')
ka (short u sound, as in 'up')
du (pronounced 'do')

And just incase you were wondering, all the u's in Uluru are pronounced 'ooo'.

Vaughan is correct where Uluru and Kakadu are concerned.  As far as I'm aware,  Mt Hagen is Hah-g'n.
