Kakadu National Park
National Parks of the Northern Territory
Australia
1989 to 1992


The Kakadu National Park, national park in the Northern Territory, Australia, established in 1979 and expanded in 1984 and 1987 and is located about 200 km (about 125 mi) east of Darwin. The park takes its name from the Aboriginal inhabitants, the Gagudju people, who trace their ancestry back at least 50,000 years. One thousand Aboriginal rock painting sites have been identified so far in the park; some of the paintings date from 35,000 years ago. Parts of Paul Hogan's "Crocodile Dundee" were shot here.

One of the more popular artworks at the Nourlangie Rock. This is Nabulwinjbulwinj. I can not remember the story about this guy except that he has two penises (not very clearly seen in this photo).
