Full description

Explore the landscape of Kakadu National Park on a day trip. Discover mangrove-fringed coastal areas that blend into expansive flood plains, lowland hills flanked to the east by sandstone escarpments, all interwoven between various open woodland and forest habitats.

Visit the Warradjan Cultural Centre to view the informative displays depicting the traditions of the Aboriginal people, before your return to Darwin. There is also the opportunity for an optional 50-minute scenic flight (own expense) for a different perspective of this vibrant landscape.

Next, join a local guide for a cruise on the famous Yellow Water Billabong. Search for saltwater crocodiles and the colorful range of birdlife for which this region is renowned.

Teeming with wildlife in the water, land, and air, the many species that provide a diversity and concentration seen nowhere else add to the natural spectacle. See how the land takes on different forms and colors with the passing of each season.

After lunch, travel across the Adelaide River and Marrakai Plains, and stop at Nourlangie Rock, where your guide will lead a walk to view the ancient Aboriginal rock art.

While around 9 hours over the course of the day is spent in the coach travelling from place to place the 3 stops were amazing. Climbing part of the escarpment was exhilarating & certainly left me wanting to explore more of Kakadu. Lunch was tasty & filling, and being a buffet there was a bit of queuing involved but no one went hungry! Though $250 extra, the optional scenic flight was spectacular & definitely not to be missed.

It’s a long day but worth every minute. Our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable. The Yellow Waters cruise was the highlight of the day with so much wildlife to see and a guide who found a great variety for us. Not to be missed and easy to understand the world heritage listing.

The tour was great. Our guide Mark was great, super fun. It's a lot of driving, but the stops were adequate. There was cold water to refill and the bus had USB charging stations. The only downside and therefore only 4 instead of 5 stars is the poor lunch, which did not match the tour at all, as there was only cold food (some salad, cold chicken thighs, potato salad, fruit). I would definitely do the tour again and would recommend it to anyone
