Since all I know is from books, I have no clue if I'm pronouncin g things right. So, what is the correct pronunciation for Kakadu KA-ka-doo? Ka-KA-doo? Ka-ka-DOO?), Uluru,Mt. Hagen (Hay-gen? Hah-gen?) Gagudju. THanks. I could help me not sound too stupid when I get off the plane. (I'm from the US)

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

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'.
