3 Day Itinerary

Day 1 - (Lunch, Dinner) 
You will be collected from your Darwin accommodation at approximately 6.00am and travel to the Mary River Wetlands for your cruise. This region is home to over 250 bird species and has the highest concentration of saltwater crocodiles in the Southern Hemisphere. Search for the mighty crocs who rule this waterway, buffalo, birds and other wildlife. Entrance to Kakadu National Park is at the South Alligator River, a picturesque location for a picnic lunch. Arrive at Ubirr where you will view a wide range of ancient Aboriginal art which will be interpreted by your guide. Learn the story of the Rainbow Serpent and climb the Nadab Lookout for panoramic views over the floodplain and beyond into Arnhem Land. As the day draws to a close, head to a private campsite for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 2 - (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner) 
This morning the jewels of Kakadu National Park await. After breakfast and departing camp, travel off road to the majestic Twin and Jim Jim Falls for a day of adventure and exploration. Travelling into Twin Falls by 4WD track, a boat shuttle and finally a rocky track and boardwalk, you will be rewarded by the beauty of this remote waterfall deep within Kakadu National Park. Afterwards, stay off the beaten track where a walk through monsoon forests and over boulders lead you to Jim Jim Falls. Surrounded by 150 metre cliffs, spend some time soaking up the natural beauty of this majestic location. In the afternoon, visit the Warradjan Cultural Centre to learn about the 40,000 years of aboriginal occupation within the park. Depart Kakadu National Park and travel towards Litchfield National Park where you will stop along the way at a private campsite. Tonight, enjoy a hearty meal with your fellow adventurers. 

Day 3 - (Breakfast, Lunch) 
Today is spent exploring the waterfalls, spring-fed streams and rugged sandstone escarpments of Litchfield National Park. Marvel at the intriguing magnetic and cathedral termite mounds and swim, hike and explore Florence and Wangi Falls. Discover the many rock holes and cascading waterfalls of Buley Rockhole before your early evening arrival back in Darwin.
