Kakadu Park Pass & where your money goes
100% of park pass revenue is invested directly back into the park. This helps to provide the visitor services and facilities you enjoy, preservation of the World Heritage environment and cultural sites, as well as payments to the traditional owners, supporting their homelands, training, and business development. The Kakadu Pass only contributes 7% to the running of Kakadu with the remaining funding coming from the Commonwealth Government. Kakadu’s Traditional Owners also benefit – the revenue from park passes is used to support traditional homelands and provide training and business development.
