<p>Kakadu National Park in the <a href="/contikipedia/articles/northern-territory">Northern Territory</a> is one of the most scenic National Parks in Australia, and certainly one of the most famous.</p> <p>The park contains two very distinct types of wilderness. The first is the Alligator River system with it&#8217;s black soil flood plains and paperback lagoons, the second; the rugged walls of the Arnhem Land escarpment with its spectacular gorges, streams and waterfalls.</p> <p>The northern end of Kakadu is series of shallow lagoons and billabongs that attract a spectacular array of water birds while the park is also home to Cannon Hill, the aboriginal &#8216;art gallery&#8217; of Arnhem Land.</p>
