Australia never ceases to amaze us with its natural beauty, and Kakadu National Park is one of the best places to explore it. From unusual rock formations to breathtaking waterfalls, this national park is home to many natural wonders, and here are three you should definitely check out while exploring it.


Unusual rock formations are scattered all across Australia, but there’s something that sets Ubirr apart. This collection of rocks is best known for being adorned with ancient Aboriginal rock paintings, mostly depicting spirits and animals, that have been around for thousands of years.

Nourlangie Rock

Nourlangie is one of the places that make the Kakadu National Park what it is, and it shares several similarities with Ubirr. It’s home to some of the world’s oldest and most impressive rock art, but it’s also known for offering spectacular views of the Arnhem Land escarpment from its sandstone cliffs.

Jim Jim Falls

The Kakadu National Park is home to several amazing waterfalls, but none of them comes even close to Jim Jim. This plunge waterfall on Jim Jim Creek descends from an elevation of 850 feet, and you can explore its natural surroundings by camping in the area or joining one of the guided walking tours.
