What You Can Expect

Kakadu Day Tour from Darwin including Ubirr Art Site and Mary River Wetlands Cruise

Ubirr, Kakadu National Park

Depart from Darwin and travel east along the Arnhem Highway, passing the major river systems and wetland regions into Kakadu National Park. This national park covers 12,430 square miles (20,000 sq kilometers) of landscape varying from rocky escarpment that is home to historic Aboriginal rock art dating back thousands of years, to the floodplains that are abundant with wildlife.

After crossing the South Alligator River travel along the Kakadu Highway to Warradjan Cultural Centre to view informative displays before cruising down the Mary River to experience the beauty of the Mary River Wetlands.

Enjoy a buffet lunch at Cooinda, before exploring the World Heritage Area of Ubirr to see Ancient Aboriginal rock art galleries. Witness the history and culture of the Aboriginal people come alive through the impressive paintings that have stood the test of time.

Late afternoon, drive out of Kakadu National Park, pausing for a comfort stop at the Corroboree Park Tavern before arriving in Darwin at approximately 8.00pm.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

This was a wonderful Experience. Our Brazilian Guide, Fabiana was wonderful, with great local knowledge and a great manner. We saw great Aboriginal art, Museums and a wonderful cruise on the Mary River, with another great guide, who knew where all the crocodiles lived. I was surprised by the lack of bird life, which I believe is more evident on the Yellow River Cruise.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

The tour of Kakadu was excellent and our tour guide, Fabiana, was one of the best I have experienced in many years. She has had extensive experience in South America and Australia and this tour is to be recommended. It was far superior to others I have done in this area.
