National Parks

With over 500 national parks to explore, Australia is truly a natural wonderland. Due to the variety of nature, there is something for everyone: deep gorges, unique rock formations, rainforests, Indigenous wildlife, coral reefs and long-stretched beaches. Many also offer cultural treasures.

Our favourite national parks in Australia

The travel specialist advised me to start my trip in Darwin during winter and the dry season. She showed me Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks close to Darwin. All my Aussie wishes were granted when I looked over an endless view from the top of a cliff in Kakadu. Incredible!
