Itinerary

Day 1 : 1 Day Darwin to Kakadu National Park
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 on this 1 Day Kakadu Tour is a 1 hour Jumping Crocodile Cruise along the Adelaide River. The traditional lands of the Limilngan-Wulna people (who are active in the reserve’s management), 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 Corroboree Park Tavern where you are able to support locals and purchase your lunch and snacks for the day ahead, and continue on to Bowali Visitor Centre to learn more about the rich Aboriginal culture and history of this special place. 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 home to some of the oldest and best-preserved rock art galleries in the world, Ubirr rock, and marvel and the amazing rock formations of the East Alligator region of Kakadu as it meets the West Arnhem plateau. Depending on seasonality and accessibility to Ubirr, we may instead visit Kakadu’s other main rock art attraction at Nourlangie rock, traditionally also known as Burrungkuy, where we can marvel at the art along the shaded rock shelters, appreciate the colourful birdlife and hope to catch a glimpse of a number of species found no-where else on the planet. *Cahills Crossing is subject to seasonality and weather conditions permitting access. Meals: n/a. Driving distance: 620 km. Walking distance: 2km.
