Day One (L, D)
We start off the tour with a fun wildlife cruise on the Corroboree Billabong, where you’ll get up close and personal with some of Australia’s magnificent creatures. Then it’s onto Kakadu National Park, where we’ll stop for a tasty picnic lunch on the pretty banks of the East Alligator River (keep your eyes peeled for crocs!), and discover the centuries-old rock art that covers Ubirr Rock.
You’ll have the chance to look out over the sprawling plains of Arnhemland before we camp in an exclusive safari camp at Garnamarr. Dinner is a traditional Aussie BBQ with the chance to taste croc, buffalo, and kangaroo.
Day Two (B, L, D)
After breakfast, we’ll head to Twin Falls via a 4WD experience before walking the top of the escarpment and taking a refreshing dip in the clear pools. Then it’s on to Jim Jim Creek for some lunch and a 1km walk through the lush vine forests at the base of the waterfall. As evening falls, we’ll have another delicious Aussie BBQ back at camp.
Day Three (B, L)
First off, we’ll head to the Warradjan Cultural Centre, where you can learn all about the local indigenous people of Kakadu. Then it’s on to Barramundi Gorge or Gunlom Falls for a hike amongst clear pools and ancient trees before taking a dip in the refreshing plunge pool.
Then it’s time to head home, stopping on the way at White Lily Billabong for our last look back at the beautiful scenery of Kakadu.
