This report undertakes an analysis of the economic contribution of Kakadu National Park derived solely from tourism expenditures in the Northern Territory (NT). The project utilises the methodology of Carlsen and Wood (2004) to estimate the value of Kakadu as a tourism driver to the sub-region, the broader Top End region and for the NT overall.

    Although i haven't got any chance to visit Kakadu National Park, but few places i have fallen in love while on tour to Australia. The most amazing experience was traveling the Northern Territory. At Darwin there are many interesting places we visited. The Aqua Scene Fish Feeding is voted as 'the most popular attraction' in tourism surveys, this unique activity is fun for all ages. Every day at high tide hundreds of fish come to shore to be fed by hand. Then you have Australian Aviation Heritage Center, where you can see presentation of aircraft, depicting the involvement of territory aviation for civic and military. http://www.australiavoyage.net
