Kakadu National Park is Aboriginal land, home to one of the oldest continuous cultures in the world. It is an internationally significant World Heritage Area, jointly managed with its Aboriginal traditional owners. Kakadu protects the entire catchment of a large tropical river, the South Alligator, with stunning wetlands, spectacular escarpment country and a remarkable array of plants and animals, especially birdlife.
This new plan looks at how to conserve those natural and cultural values, whilst protecting the interests of the park's traditional owners and providing for safe and enriching experiences for visitors. This plan focuses on developing partnerships between government, the private sector and traditional owners to provide new opportunities for visitors and new business opportunities for local Aboriginal people.
