We’ll start by travelling along the Stuart Highway where you’ll get your first introduction to the stunning landscape of this region. We’ll travel alongside the Marrakai Plains, which will form a beautiful backdrop to the journey.
When we arrive at the World Heritage listed Kakadu National Park, you’ll get to explore the expanse of lush mangrove coastline, rolling lowland hills, and open woodland peppered with animal life. Explore the lakes, rivers, and waterfalls and their inhabitants, and keep your eyes peeled for the colourful birds and native animal species. As well as all this, we’ll take you to see some 50,000-year-old rock art that illustrates the fascinating history of local Aboriginal life.
As the day wears on, you’ll get to take a cruise along the Yellow Water Billabong, discovering the majestic crocodiles that live there, before we move on to the Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre, where you can learn more about the custodians of the Kakadu National Park.
To finish, we’ll make our way to Nourlangie, a mesmerizing rock art site filled with centuries-old illustrations. You’ll get to walk around the rock whilst a knowledgeable guide shares spiritual and cultural stories about the local tribes with you.
