Day 1 :: Darwin to Kakdu National Park
Leaving the relaxed harbour city of Darwin behind, we journey to World Heritage listed Kakadu National Park. Covering more than 20,000sq km, Kakadu is a vast expanse of lush wetlands, rock art and unique ecosystems that has captured the imagination of explorers and artists alike. Discover the park's ancient secrets and get up close and personal with native Kakadu flora and fauna. Enjoy a spot of crocodile watching on a relaxing cruise through the park's peaceful byways before taking in views from ancient Ubirr Rock. Admire the fascinating Indigenous rock art and hear stories of the Creation Time. Overnight in Kakadu. (LD)
Day 2 :: Kakadu NP to Katherine
After breakfast, head out to explore more of Kakadu and take an energising walk to Twin Falls before heading south to Pine Creek to learn of its colourful gold-rush past. After lunch we make our way to Springvale Homestead to relax on the banks of the Katherine River. Look out for wallabies that are often spotted hopping around near camp and fall asleep under the bright outback sky. Overnight in Katherine. (BLD)
Day 3 :: Katherine Gorge to Darwin
Rise early to maximise time spent exploring Katherine Gorge. Formed by the Katherine River flowing from Arnhem Land out to the sea, this natural wonder is one of the Northern Territory’s most striking features. Take a leisurely two-hour cruise along the river's tranquil waters or, for the more energetic, choose to paddle out on a canoeing adventure. The waters are cool and clear, and the dramatic sandstone backdrop of Katherine Gorge is jaw-dropping. Enjoy a visit to the picturesque Edith Falls on the return to Darwin and celebrate a memorable outback tour with new found friends. (BL)
