It is the tapestry of great ecosystems that creates the beauty of Kakadu. Sandstone escarpments shaped by an incomprehensible time span, monsoon forests and flood plains, great rivers journey serpentine to the sea, stunningly beautiful billabongs and lagoons are richly clad in a profusion of colour by glorious water lilies and edged by pandanas and paper bark trees.
Kakadu homes birds of every size, every hue and every song, fearsome crocodiles on the mudslides of billabongs, Aboriginal artwork painted on rock cave walls. This place is creation in its wonderful diversity, this place is Kakadu and it will leave a long last impression.
