What You Can Expect
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 continuing to Cooinda for a Yellow Water Wetlands cruise to experience the beauty of the Kakadu 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.
