What to Expect
This professionally guided tour will lead you all through Kakadu National Park, one of Australia's largest protected areas. The park is known for its ancient rock paintings, some of which are up to 20,000 years old, spectacular landscapes and rock formations. If you want to hear the stories behind the ancient Aboriginal art in the Northern Territory, this is the tour for you.
Your tour will depart at approximately 5:30 am with pickup from your Darwin accommodation. From there, hop into a comfy vehicle and begin your drive to Kakadu National Park (stops, iced water and snacks provided along the way).
Once you've entered the park, your first visit will be to Ubirr Rock, where some of the park's indigenous rock art is located. Your knowledgeable guide will lead you through the area, explaining the art and the creation stories behind it. Next, get the chance to walk through the ancient rock art galleries as you make your way up to Nadab lookout. This lookout provides an incredible 360-degree view of the Nadab floodplains – an expansive wetlands area, and onwards to Arnhem Land.
After a break for lunch, you will head to the East Alligator River. Here, you will join the Guluyambi Cultural Cruise, a relaxing but interactive way to hear more about the area's history and culture.
Take a leisurely cruise to this beautiful pristine wilderness of the World Heritage landscape. You get insights into Aboriginal culture, local mythology, how plants and animals were traditionally used, and bush survival skills from a local Aboriginal guide.
You will also be invited to disembark on the Arnhem Land side of the river, where the guide will display traditional hunting and gathering. This cruise ensures an intimate and personalised cultural experience.
After the cruise returns you to the Kakadu riverbank, your guide will drive you back to your Darwin accommodation.
Please note: Your guide will make a stop on the morning of the tour to purchase your park entry tickets if you did not have access to the internet before the tour.
The tour includes convenient return transfers from selected Darwin accommodation.
