Pick up at 6.30-6.45am from your nominated accommodation in Darwin
We start our Kakadu tour by heading towards the world heritage listed Kakadu National
Park, with a stopover and the iconic Australiana Bark Hut for quick refreshment.
Stop & enjoy the sights of the tidal East Alligator River with the opportunity to
spot some crocs and flying foxes!
Then on to the world famous Ubirr in the north of the park. Some of the best examples of
northern Australian rock art can be found here. Learn about the art from your
guide and the meaning behind these special paintings. A climb to the top is
rewarded with staggering 360º views over the Nardab floodplains and into Arnhemland.
Tonight, we stay in a private room at the Mercure Kakadu Crocodile Hotel in Jabiru.
Dinner tonight is at your own expense in the restaurant.

DAY 2 – KAKADU
After breakfast we do some 4 Wheel driving to Jim Jim Falls. A 1 km walk through the
gorge surrounded by towering 200m high sandstone cliffs leads to the impressive
plunge pool for a well-deserved refreshing swim, or simply relax on the beach
whilst taking in the breathtaking views.
Visit to the Warradjan cultural centre is a great opportunity to gain some insight into
the traditional owners of Kakadu through interactive displays and demonstrations.
Tonight we stay at Cooinda Lodge where you can enjoy a relaxing swim in the pool before
joining a 2hr Sunset Cruise on the famous Yellow Waters. Here we will have the
opportunity to see spectacular wildlife including abundant birdlife and crocodiles
in their natural habitat.
Return to Cooinda Lodge for dinner, which is at your own expense.

paperbark forest with some rock scrambling leads to the plunge pool for a cool
swim in a pristine environment.
We then head to Gunlom 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 not to be missed
is a must see, and a last chance to relax before contemplating the drive back
We return to Darwin via the historic town of Pine Creek arriving in Darwin at approximately
