Kakadu lies in the far north of Australia...only two seasons really...wet and dry...in fact its wetlands are well known along with the abundance of wildlife especially flying animals...over 280 species and maybe 60 mammals or so.
This National Park is in the Northern Territory of Australia, 171 km south-east of Darwin.
Kakadu National Park is located within the Alligator Rivers which in itself is a misnomer there are no Alligators here only in zoos. It covers an area of 1,980,400 ha extending nearly 200 kilometres from north to south and over 100 kilometres from east to west. It is the size of Israel, about one-third the size of Tasmania, or nearly half the size of Switzerland.
The Ranger Uranium Mine, one of the most productive Uranium mines in the world, is contained within the park.
Myself and a friend have decided to go next year...there are many aboriginal sites there...I have been told that some are taboo to us whites...I'll go along with that...many things to see here

Here is a short video of some of the bird life below

A few images of the park to round off this post

This is an Australian Bustard

A frill Lizard...not toxic but will bite...all Australian lizards are not poisonous at all but some will bite

Beware of these beauties they stalk and will kill the saltwater or estuarine crocodile (Crocodylus porosus) is the largest of all living reptiles
