Kakadu is Australia’s largest national park.

Kakadu covers almost 20,000 square kilometers and is a place of enormous biodiversity. It extends from the coast and estuaries in the north through floodplains, billabongs and lowlands to rocky ridges and stone country in the south.

‘Kakadu’ was named for Gagudju, a language previously spoken in the park. Its last fluent speakers died in the early 2000s, but it was one of the languages spoken by the Gagudju people of the plains of the South and East Alligator Rivers.
