Tales of the Outback…Kakadu National Park

Let us take you on a journey through the Australian Outback to explore the myths and legends surrounding some of the country‘s most mesmerising sights…

Kakadu National Park

Situated at the top of the Northern Territory, Kakadu National Park is famous not only for its natural beauty or as the location of an epic scene from ‘Crocodile Dundee’, but also for its vast collection of ancient rock art. Ubirr, Nourlangie Rock and Nanguluwue are world renowned for their exceptional examples of Aboriginal cross hatch and x-ray art, some of which was created over 2000 years ago. Each piece of art tells a story and you are likely to come across images of iconic animals such as the kangaroo, barramundi or even the thylacine (Tasmanian Tiger), as well as paintings of famous Creation Ancestors such as the Rainbow Serpent, the Namarrgarn Sisters or Mimi spirits. Whether created to pass down the lessons of their ancestors, to aid fellow aboriginals in their hunting quests; to depict important religious ceremonies or simply for fun – there is no doubt that these drawings are a fascinating and spectacular sight to behold.
