Full description
Explore the timeless landscape of Kakadu National Park on a 13-hour tour through its beauty and diversity. Discover mangrove-fringed coastal areas that blend into expansive flood plains, lowland hills flanked to the east by sandstone escarpments, all interwoven between various open woodland and forest habitats. Teeming with wildlife in the water, land, and air, the many species that provide a diversity and concentration seen nowhere else add to the natural spectacle. See how the land takes on different forms and colors with the passing of each season. Travel across the Adelaide River and Marrakai Plains, and stop at Nourlangie Rock, where your guide will lead a walk to view the ancient Aboriginal rock art. After lunch, join a local guide for a cruise on the famous Yellow Water Billabong. Search for saltwater crocodiles and the colorful range of birdlife for which this region is renowned. Then, visit the Warradjan Cultural Centre to view the informative displays depicting the traditions of the Aboriginal people, before your return to Darwin. There is also the opportunity for an optional 50-minute scenic flight (own expense) for a different perspective of this vibrant landscape.

The tour was a good introduction to the Kakadu and NT history. The cruise along Yellow Waters billabong was beautiful with lots of bird spotting along the shorelines. The lunch was a little underwhelming; consisting of cold cuts and salads, I also missed out on the scenic flight optional even though I was one of the first people to place my name in cue. Would of preferred more time to explore Nourlangie independently as this part felt a little rushed.

Very interesting and entertaining day trip

The pick up at the cruise terminal was absolutely punctual, the breaks during the long drive to Kakadu Park sufficient. Our bus driver, who also took over the complete guest information to everything, was very competent and friendly. From the boat tour with the crocodiles, we had promised a little more, except that it's free living crocodiles. We would do the 13 hour trip again and again.
