Kakadu National Park lies 171 km southeast of Darwin and covers an area of 19,804 km or nearly half the size of Switzerland.The Park's diverse environments support an astounding array of animals able to cope the extreme weather conditions. Many animals and mammals are to be found in the park including dingoes, Antilopine Kangaroos, Black Wallaroos, Agile Wallabys, and Short-eared Rock Wallabys. Smaller common mammals are northern quolls, brush-tailed phascogales, brown bandicoots, black-footed tree-rats, and brown fruit bats. Kakadu's bird life is remarkable with 280 species of birds, or about one-third of Australia's bird species. The river cruise down Yellow Water is a lesson in nature with an abundance of bird and animal life including very large crocodiles, this is not to be missed.
