Day One (Lunch)
We start off the tour and head straight to Kakadu National Park, via Australiana Bark Hut for a quick snack. Once we’ve arrived in Kakadu, we’ll stop for a tasty picnic lunch at Anbangbang Billabond, where you will be able to sit back and take in the scenery of Burrunguy (Nourlangie rock). Afterwards, we’ll head to the base of Burrunguy where you can stroll through a gallery and learn about the history behind the area and the rock art. Then we’ll make our way up to Gunwhardewharde lookout to take in the sprawling plains of the Arnhem Land escarpment.
In the afternoon, we’ll head to our accommodation where you can cool off with a swim in the pool. As the evening falls, we’ll jump aboard a sunset cruise to take in the stunning colours on the Yellow Water Billabong and spot some of the crocodiles and birds that call the area home.
Day Two (Breakfast & Lunch)
After breakfast, we head to Gunlom Falls in the southern end of Kakadu. We’ll walk through the impressive gorge and vine forests to take a refreshing dip in the stunning, clear pools. In the afternoon we’ll head to Maguk (Barramundi Gorge) for a short hike through the paperbark forest and a dip in the natural plunge pool. If there is time in the evening, we’ll visit Warradjan Cultural Centre to learn about the life and culture of Kakadu’s traditional owners.
Day Three (Breakast & Lunch)
First off on day three, we’ll head to 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 learn all about the history of rock art and the meaning behind each painting before taking a hike to enjoy the panoramic views of the Nardab floodplains.
We’ll continue to make the most of our trip with a stop at the Mamukala wetlands to do some bird watching, and Humpty Doo Hotel for a refreshment before arriving in Darwin around 5pm.
