We leave tropical Darwin travelling through the rich floodplains towards World Heritage Listed Kakadu National Park. This 20,000 square kilometre area teems with wildlife, important Aboriginal rock art sites, and diverse landscapes.
Our first stop of the day allows us to be hands-on and learn from the Traditional Owners at Pudakul Aboriginal Cultural Tours on Limilngan-Wulna land during a walking tour where you'sll learn about bush tucker, bush medicine and be hands-on with rope tying. This spectacular area is home to numerous species of birds, turtles, water pythons and of course the iconic crocodile.
We'sll stop in at the Corroboree Park Tavern where you are able to support locals and purchase your lunch and snacks for the day ahead, and continue on to Bowali Visitor Centre to learn more about the rich Aboriginal culture and history of this special place. We'sll visit the famous *Cahills Crossing in search of crocodiles at this eye-opening stretch of water, the only road access point between Arnhem Land and Kakadu National Park.
Visit the home to some of the oldest and best-preserved rock art galleries in the world, Ubirr rock, and marvel and the amazing rock formations of the East Alligator region of Kakadu as it meets the West Arnhem plateau. Depending on seasonality and accessibility to Ubirr during the summer months, we may instead visit Kakadu'ss other main rock art attraction at Nourlangie rock, traditionally also known as Burrungkuy, where we can marvel at the art along the shaded rock shelters, appreciate the colourful birdlife and hope to catch a glimpse of a number of species found no-where else on the planet. *Cahill Crossing - Please note certain areas of Kakadu National Park are subject to closures at any time for cultural and seasonal reasons.
