Kakadu Habitats in
Kakadu National Park, Northern Territory Australia

The name Kakadu:

Comes come the Aboriginal Floodplain Language of Gagudiju. The kakadu National Park cover around 20,000 km. This includes the Aboriginal Traditional Lands of a number of clans. Kakadu is managed jointly by it's Aboriginal Traditional Owners and the Commonwealth Organization Environment Australia.

Ancestors:

It is respected that kakadu is a cultural landscape. Being shaped by the spiritual ancestors of the Aboriginal peoples during the Creation Time. The ancestors (first people) were said to have journeyed across the country creating the landforms, animals, plants and the Aboriginal people (Bininj/Mungguy).

They came with laws to live by: language, kinship, ceremony and ecological catetakership. They taught these peoples how to live and look after the lands.

World Heritage Area:

Kakadu National Park approximatley 230klm from Darwin in Northern Territory, Australia is one of the few World Heritage Areas that has been designated for it's natural and historical heritage. This National Park protects one of the world's best examples of rock art. Kakadu also protects the entire catchment of a large tropical river, the South Alligator, creating one of the most remarkable collections of flora and fauna anywhere in the world.

Kakadu Habitats

Savanna Woodlands: Woodlands makeup nearly 80% of this park. Mostly eucalypts and tall grasses. Here the woodland support a large range of wildlife and a greater variety of plants than else where in the park.

Monsoon Forests: These forests occur in small pockets. Birds and Flyying Foxes link the plants by dispersing it's pollen.

Stone Coountry: At the east of the park's highway a large dominating escarpment of standstone "Arnhem Land Plateau" exists. From 30m to 300 m it covers the historical spiritual drawings of Ubirr and Nourlangie.

Tidal Flats and Coast:Kakadu protects around 500 sq km of estuarine and costal areas. Most of which are mangrove lined forests forming an excellent nursury for fish. kakadu's wetlands include billabongs, floodplains, rivers, estuarine and coastal areas. These areas are significantly imortant and recognised as areas ofr mirgratory birds.

Floodplains and Billabongs: These floodplains tend to undergo dramatic seasonal changes. This can be viewed from the Arnhem Highway when passing the South Alligator floodplain. After the wet season rainfalls, a sea flows over the plains for hundreds of ksquare kilometres in patches. When these plains start to dry out the waterbirds and crocodiles seek refuge in remainingareas such as the renowned Yellow Water Billabong.

Southern Hills and Ridges: In the south of Kakadu National Park, hill sand broken ridge lines are a result off millions of years of erosion.the unusaul geology of this area is reflected int he diversity of habitats and the presence of plants and animals that do not occur anywhere else in the world.

Fire

Fire is a major influence in the Australian environment. Fire has been a very important factor in Aboriginal life over the previous generations and 1000's of years. it was used for cooking, signalling, making hunting easier, to attract animals,to p[rotetc foods like Yams and finally to "clean" the country. before the long hot dry season approaches.
