Join us on the adventure of a lifetime as we uncover the very best Kakadu has to offer.
We leave tropical Darwin travelling through the rich floodplains towards Kakadu National Park, this 20,000 square kilometre area is teeming with wildlife, important Aboriginal rock art sites, and diverse landscapes.
Our first stop of the day is an optional Jumping Croc Cruise on the Adelaide River or a visit to the Fogg Dam Conservation Centre. The traditional lands of the Limilngan-Wulna people (who are active in the reserve's management) are one of the most spectacular places to explore the diverse wildlife of the Top End, home to numerous species of birds, turtles, water pythons and of course the iconic Saltwater Crocodile.
We’ll stop in at the Bowali Visitor Centre to learn more about the rich indigenous culture and history of this special place and break for lunch (at own expense). We’ll visit the famous Cahills Crossing in search of crocodiles at this eye opening stretch of water, the only road access point between Arnhem Land and Kakadu National Park.
Visit the World Heritage Listed, sacred site Ubirr rock art. Home to some of the oldest and best preserved rock art galleries in the world. Dating back some 20,000 years and discover the hidden secrets with a guided walk. Meals: n/a. Driving Distance: 600 km. Walking Distance: ~3km / 4km.
