DARWIN - KAKADU NATIONAL PARK

1 Day

247 km

After collecting the vehicle and driving east out of Darwin turn left on to the

Arnhem Highway and head for the Kakadu National Park. Suggest a stop at

Window on the Wetlands Visitor Centre, and then perhaps Adelaide River for an

optional Jumping Crocodile cruise. The scenery on the way is dramatic and

colourful with bird life, wet lands and high escarpments. A visit to the Bowali

Visitor Centre is a must to learn more about this unique environment.

day 2

KAKADU NATIONAL PARK

1 Day

You have a full day at leisure to explore Kakadu. This morning take the included

1.5 hour Yellow Waters Cruises from Cooinda. After your cruise call into the

Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Other sights to see today include a visit to

Nourlangie Rock and Ubirr Rock, or an optional scenic flight. Aboriginal rock art

in this area is very well preserved and accessible. It's worth taking a guided tour

to have the history of the rock art explained to you.

day 3

KAKADU NATIONAL PARK - KATHERINE

1 Day

299 km

Leave Kakadu and head south on the Kakadu Highway towards Pine Creek. At

Pine Creek you rejoin the Stuart Highway and travel on south to Katherine,

making a leisurely stop at the beautiful Edith Falls. The Katherine Gorge is

located 30 km from the town centre, here the river flows between towering walls

of colour.

 

day 4

KATHERINE

1 Day

This morning take the included 2 hour gorge cruise. Katherine Gorge is a system

of 13 gorges all joining by rapids. The best way to see the Gorge is from the

water, there are also scenic flights and plenty of marked walking tracks. This

afternoon suggest a visit Mataranka, which is 110km from Katherine. Mataranka

is situated in Elsey National Park and here the Mataranka Thermal Pool is found.

This is a very popular swimming spot - the thermal pool is around a constant

temperature of 34 degrees Celsius.

day 5

KATHERINE - LITCHFIELD NATIONAL PARK AND LAKE BENNETT

and offers safe swimming and spectacular waterfalls all year round. The main

attractions in Litchfield National Park including Buley Rockhole, Wangi, Tolmer

and Florence Falls are all linked by quality sealed roads. There is swimming in
