Day 1 - Darwin to Kakadu

Today, your tour commences with complimentary pick-ups between 6:30am and 7:45am from your nominated accommodation in Darwin.

Then, head towards the world heritage listed Kakadu National Park, with a stopover at the iconic Australiana Bark Hut for a quick refreshment.

Also along the way are a stop at the East Alligator River with the opportunity to spot some crocs and flying foxes, before heading out to the world famous Ubirr in the north of the Kakadu National Park.

Some of the best examples of northern Australian rock art can be found here, with a chance to learn more about the art from your guide including the meaning behind these special paintings. A climb to the top is then rewarded with staggering 360 degree views over the Nardab floodplains and into Arnhemland.

Tonight, you'll stay in a private room at the Mercure Kakadu Crocodile Hotel in Jabiru.


Day 2 - Kakadu

After breakfast, enjoy a 4WD journey out to Jim Jim Falls. Here you'll embark on a 1km walk through the gorge surrounded by towering 200m high sandstone cliffs.

Continue on to the impressive plunge pool where you'll enjoy a well-deserved refreshing swim, or simply relax on the beach whilst taking in the breathtaking views.

Also on the cards today is a visit to the Warradjan Cultural Centre where you'll experience a great opportunity to gain some insight into the traditional owners of Kakadu through interactive displays and demonstrations.

Tonight, you'll stay at Cooinda Lodge where you can enjoy a relaxing swim in the pool before joining a 2 hour sunset cruise on the famous Yellow Waters. Here you will have the opportunity to see spectacular wildlife including abundant birdlife and crocodiles in their natural habitat.

Then it's time to return to Cooinda Lodge for dinner.


Day 3 - Kakadu to Darwin

After some breakfast, you'll then make your way to Maguk (Barramundi Gorge). Here, enjoy a 1km hike through a paperbark forest that leads to the plunge pool for a cool swim in a pristine environment.

Then, head to Falls in the southern end of Kakadu. A hike to the top is rewarded with a swim in the naturally occurring infinity pools whilst taking in the panoramic views of southern Kakadu. The bottom plunge pool is a must see, and a last chance to relax before the drive back to Darwin.

Kakadu, Arnhemland and Litchfield are rough and rugged stone bush country. In many of the places, we access and those listed in the itinerary, there are cleared walking tracks, but not boardwalks or handrails. Some of the walks are over slippery and uneven ground, and we will always advise caution when walking over these surfaces. A reasonable level of fitness & stable footing is required for most locations and to make the most of the experience. These tours have been designed for the fit and active.

To get the most out of this trip you need to be prepared for walks of between 3km and 8km on some days. This may be on rough ground and perhaps getting feet wet in rivers and creeks. From Oct to March you will experience temperatures of over 35 degrees celsius (and sometimes well into the 40s) so be prepared to endure extra physical stress due to the heat at these times, especially while on walks.

These extreme outside temperatures can also place stress on the air-conditioning units within the tour vehicles which can make travelling uncomfortable. Your tour guide will assist with regular breaks and information to assist in keeping well hydrated.

Passengers with special meal requirements must ensure they advise us at the time of booking. Food for the trip is purchased prior to commencement and special requirements cannot be catered for after departing. Vegetarians, celiacs or those with any special meal requirements may need to provide additional assistance to the leader for meal preparation.

Mobile phone reception is available around all major service centers within Kakadu, Litchfield, Arnhemland and Mardugal campground. There is a satellite phone on every vehicle for emergencies.

The most important thing to remember is you're on holidays and that’s a great reason to not have a phone!!


On this tour, you will be responsible for purchasing your own dinner on Night 1 and Night 2.

Your leader will prepare most of the meals whilst on tour but you will have the opportunity to assist with helping prepare meals and clearing dishes. None of this is difficult, however many hands make light work and any assistance provided to crew is always much appreciated. Most people agree that this type of activity helps you feel like less of a tourist and more of an explorer.

Please budget for approximately AUD $100 additional meals and expenses while on your trip which may include ice-creams, souvenirs or the purchase of a refreshing ale for the evenings campfire. If purchasing alcohol, we recommend buying it in Darwin for better price and variety. There is a drinks esky provided on the vehicle. Our suggestion is based on past traveller feedback but you may choose to spend more or less.

Ensure you have a couple of light, long sleeve cotton shirts as these help with pesky mozis in the more humid nights.
Daytime temperatures and humidity can be extreme from Oct to March with temperatures over 35 degrees Celsius. Night time temperatures can also be high at this time of year.

Therefore, we recommend that you bring loose, cool, cotton clothing to protect yourself from the harsh sun. A sun hat, sunscreen, swimwear, towel, sturdy walking shoes and sunglasses are also a must.

Daytime temperatures can be extreme from Oct to March with temperatures over 40 degrees celsius. Please bring a large refillable water bottle. We strongly recommend the use of dehydration salts and sports drinks as a way to combat dehydration during times of extreme heat.
