Visit the Top End (Northern Territory) to discover Australia’s most famous national park – Kakadu. Your full day you will depart from Darwin and travel to Kakadu National Park, which covers some 20,000 square kilometres making it Australia’s largest national park.
Kakadu’s vast wetlands and ancient escarpment are home to one of Australia’s largest and most diverse bird populations and hold outstanding natural and cultural significance. Take an optional 50-minute scenic flight over the Arnhem Land Escarpment. Then join a guided cruise on Yellow Water billabong. Keep an eye out for the wildlife, including crocodiles.
See rock art sites at Nourlangie Rock. The name ‘Nourlangie’ is an anglicized version of Nawurlandja. The most famous rock art picture at Nourlangie is called Namondjok and for some Aboriginal groups he is a Creation Ancestor who now lives in the sky and can be seen only at night, when he appears as a dark spot in the Milky Way galaxy. En route to Darwin, stop at Window on the Wetlands Visitor Centre to learn about the wildlife, seasonal changes, the various animal groups and local Aboriginal and European history. Enjoy complimentary drinks with stunning views over the floodplains.

I have just returned from Darwin and took this tour whilst I was there. The tour was excellent; our tour guide was informative and helpful. The coach was clean and comfortable. The Yellow water cruise was fabulous and again the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and informative. I will certainly recommend this tour to everyone I know. Thank you for a great day.
