Itinerary

Day 1Darwin to Kakadu National Park (210 km)

Travel east on the Stuart Highway out of Darwin and then turn left on the Arnhem Highway and head for Kakadu National Park. Highlights on the drive to Kakadu include Fogg Dam and Window on the Wetlands Visitor Centre. The scenery of Kakadu is dramatic and the area has prolific wildlife and birdlife. In addition, the aboriginal rock art is amongst the finest rock art in the world. Allow enough time to explore Kakadu this afternoon.

We suggest a visit to the Bowali Visitor Centre, located on the Kakadu Highway. Visit Ubirr Rock and Nourlangie Rock for some of the best and oldest examples of Aboriginal rock art. For the adventurous, there is also a moderately steep climb to Gunwarddehwardde Lookout which provides impressive views of Kakadu’s escarpment and Nourlangie Rock.

Day 2Kakadu National Park to Katherine (310 km)

This morning you are booked on a 1.5 hour Yellow Waters Cruise. After your cruise call into the Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre before leaving Kakadu. Please be aware the Stuart Highway may be unpassable in wet weather (from November to April). Please seek local advice before departure. Katherine is the major intersection between northern, southern and western routes.

Day 3Katherine to Darwin (316 km)

This morning you are booked on the 2 hour Katherine Gorge cruise. Contact the tour desk for precise directions on how to get to the gorge to board the boat. You may like to take a swim after your cruise so be sure to have your swimsuit handy. Katherine Gorge is a system of 13 gorges all joining by rapids. The best way to see the Gorge is from the water, there are also scenic flights and plenty of marked walking tracks.

Head back to Darwin this afternoon. From Katherine it’s a leisurely three and a half-hour drive north on the Stuart Highway back to Darwin. Return Car
