Day 1: Darwin to Kakadu National Park
Leaving Darwin our adventure begins as we travel out into the impressive scenery of the Top End Wetlands Region. You’ll get to enjoy breathtaking views of the abundant wildlife, native birdlife and of course, saltwater crocodiles along the way.
After paying a visit to the Bowali Visitor Centre, we arrive at Kakadu National Park and settle into our accommodation where we’ll be staying for the next two nights in Jabiru. The centre offers an extraordinary insight into the rich Indigenous art and culture and an introduction into the landscape and wildlife from the Kakadu region and beyond. We then continue north to the border of Kakadu and Arnhem Land, stopping briefly at the infamous Cahills Crossing in the East Alligator region of the park.
We spend the rest of the afternoon exploring some of the best preserved Aboriginal rock art in the world at Ubirr whilst our knowledgeable guides interpret the Rock art and share ancient Dreamtime stories of the famous Rainbow Serpent. As the sun begins to set we climb up high to enjoy panoramic sunset views overlooking the Nadab Floodplain. As night falls, we head back to our campsite in Jabiru to prepare our evening meal together and enjoy an evening of stargazing with your travelling companions.
