Photographer's Note

Yesterday I wanted to be creative but some of you preferred the reflections of the whole trees. So I hope you will like also this view in the evening.

Approximately half of the land in Kakadu National Park is Aboriginal land under the Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act 1976 and most of the remaining land is currently under claim by Aboriginal people. The areas of the Park that are owned by Aborigines are leased by the traditional owners to the Director of National Parks for park management. The remaining area is Commonwealth land vested under the Director of National Parks.

The Aboriginal traditional owners of the Park are descendants of various clan groups from the Kakadu area. Their lifestyle has changed in recent history, but their traditional customs and beliefs remain very important and are respected by park management. About 500 Aboriginal people live in the Park, many of whom are traditional owners.

The name Kakadu may come from the mispronunciation of Gaagudju, which is the name of an Aboriginal language spoken in the northern part of the park.
