A World Heritage Area explained

Kakadu and Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) National Parks are unique in Australia in terms of their diversity of geological, cultural and biological values.

Both parks are renowned for sandstone plateaus with spectacular gorges and escarpments, and contain some of the oldest and finest collections of Aboriginal rock art in the world.

The parks support a remarkable abundance and variety of plants and animals, many of them rare or not found anywhere else. Kakadu is also famous for its extensive wetlands and is one of the few World Heritage areas listed for both its natural and cultural values.

This guidebook has been written by experts from the Australian Geological Survey Organisation, Northern Territory Geological Survey, Environment Australia, Parks Australia, and the Parks and Wildlife Commission of the Northern Territory.

Written for the non specialist, the guidebook provides a concise and authoritative account of the rocks, landforms, plants, animals, Aboriginal culture. and exploration history of the Kakadu and Nitmiluk National Parks.

There is also information facilities, commercial tours and helpful hints on getting the most from your visit.
