Kakadu National Park is located near to Darwin with an area of almost 20,000 square kilometres. More than half the park is Aboriginal land, and all of Kakadu is special to its traditional owners, they also manage the park in partnership with Parks Australia.
The name Kakadu may come from the mispronunciation of Gaagudju, which is the name of an Aboriginal language formerly spoken in the northern part of the park.
The park was first inscribed on the World Heritage list in 1981, with further areas added in 1987, 1992 and 2011.
