Child prices are available for children aged 12 - 15 years. Sorry, we don't carry children under 12 years old on this tour.
Please note: Due to the remote nature of the areas we visit, the high daytime temperatures in the Top End and the difficulty of the hiking trails, this tour is restricted to travellers aged 12 – 65 years with a reasonable level of fitness.
Day One (Lunch & Dinner)
The tour begins early as we make our way straight to Kakadu, only stopping off on the way at the Australiana Bark Hut for morning tea. We’ll push on to East Alligator River, where stop for lunch and try to spot some crocodiles in the water. After lunch, we’ll head to Ubirr Rock, to admire some of the area’s best examples of Aboriginal rock art and learn more about the history and culture of Kakadu’s traditional owners. Climb to the top to take in stunning panoramic views over the Nardab floodplains.
We’ll camp at our exclusive safari camp in the heart of Kakadu.
Day Two (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)
We’ll wake up early and, after breakfast, head out 4-wheel-driving to Jim Jim Falls. Be amazed by the towering cliffs on either side as we enjoy a short walk through the gorge to the plunge pool, where you can cool off with a refreshing dip or chill out on the sandy beach. After this relaxing break, we’ll visit the Warradjan Cultural Centre where you can explore the interactive displays for a fascinating insight into the local Aboriginal culture and history.
As the sun dips below the horizon, we enjoy a sunset cruise on the Yellow Water Billabong. Soak up the serene surroundings as the colours change and keep your eyes peeled for crocs and other local wildlife. Once darkness falls, we’ll head back to our safari camp at Mardukal Billabong for some dinner around the campfire.
Day Three (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)
On day three, we’ll head to Maguk, or Barramundi Gorge as it’s often known. Here, you’ll have the morning to hike, swim, explore, and relax, checking out hidden spots and learning about the incredible natural scenery of the area. After lunch, we’ll push on to Gunlom Falls, where you’ll have a chance to hike to the top and gaze out over the views below. Laze about on the sandy beach or splash about in the plunge pool at the base of the falls.
In the evening we set up camp at Goymarr (Mary River Roadhouse).
Day Four (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)
Day four we visit Koolpin Gorge, a special permit access only site, where you can walk up the gorge through incredible wild scenery, passing pretty rock pools and ancient trees as you go. This area is rich in indigenous history and you will learn about the importance of the site to the Aboriginal people. Visitation numbers to this stunning remote location are limited to 40 per day, so you can enjoy the exclusive experience away from the crowds.
Day Five (Breakfast & Lunch)
We begin our final day with a visit to Old Goodparla Homestead, once a cattle station before Kakadu was a national park. The homestead offers a fascinating insight into the struggles Europeans faced when settling in Outback Australia. Then it’s off to Ikoymarrwa (Moline Rockhole) for one last swim in this special permit area, before we make our way back to Darwin. With a final stop at Pine Creek, we arrive back in Darwin in the evening.
