Pictures And Travel Info For National Parks In Australia

There are so many Australian national parks, and the Australian national parks section of this guide has grown so big, I had to turn this page into a small site map.

Below are links to all the information about Australia's national parks that's available on this site.

Here is a summary page: National Parks In Australia. It has a short intro and description for every national park.

Kakadu National Park
The biggest of the Australian national parks, three hours south-east of Darwin, is well known by name. But no matter how many photos you have looked at, and how many times you have watched Crocodile Dundee, you ain't seen nothing yet.

It would be a shame to race through Kakadu National Park on a one day trip, and it would be a shame for me to race through on only one page.

I have devoted a whole section to this magnificent park, and still I feel it deserves more. I will be visiting Kakadu again and again, and I will be adding more information here.

Litchfield National Park
This small Australian national park has long been overshadowed by its huge neighbour Kakadu. Not any more...

Small park, big scenery. This Australian national park is located on the border of the Northern Territory and the Western Australia Kimberley.

Uluru - Kata Tjuta National Park (Ayers Rock)
Ayers Rock is of course the most famous of all Australian national parks. The popularity brings commercialism and huge numbers of people, and both can spoil the experience. The articles in this section try to help you avoid that.
