Kakadu National Park wins prestigious tourism award

Australia has an abundance to offer when it comes to natural beauty and unique experiences for tourists. This became justified last night when the Kakadu National Park took home top prize in the Major Tourist Attraction category at the Brolga Awards.

Kakadu is one of Australia’s most popular natural beauty’s that spreads just under 20,000 square kilometres of land in the Northern Territory. The National Park offers a variety of astounding landscapes to explore for tourists who wish to see the heart of the Australian land, featuring the natural wildlife which you can only find in this country.

Kakadu encompasses the natural beauty of Australia and this award is a magnificent achievement for Australian tourism, as says Jeffery Lee who was grateful to accept the prestigious award on Kakadu’s behalf with Park Manager, Pete Cotsell.

“I’m very excited for the whole community, for the whole park,” Mr Lee said. “Winning an award like this recognises the great effort that has been put into nurturing tourism in Kakadu. It’s a great achievement – and everyone involved in tourism in the park should be proud.”

Last year, the Park welcomed more than 180,000 people who explored the diverse landscape which boasts wetlands and rivers and much of the beloved native wildlife call home; including saltwater crocodiles, fallback turtles, and a variety of birds. The park also offer tourists walking rock climbing and rock art viewing, bird watching, cultural tours, free ranger guided walks and tours.

Kakadu will also compete in the respectable national Australian tourism awards which will be held in Darwin, February 2017.
