What You Can Expect

Kakadu, Nourlangie and Yellow Waters Tour with Optional Flight over Kakadu

Yellow Water Cruise

Covering nearly 20,000 square miles (32,180 square km) of rivers, wetlands and ancient sandstone mesas, the Northern Territory’s Kakadu National Park is the largest park in Australia. Your full-day wilderness adventure begins with early morning pickup at your Darwin hotel and an approximately 2-hour drive to the park.

When you arrive, visit the remarkable collection of ancient Aboriginal rock art in the desert at Nourlangie Rock. Take a journey thousands of years back in time as you see stories of daily life depicted through well-preserved cave paintings. Break for a picnic lunch surrounded by the park’s dramatic scenery. 

In the afternoon, glide along the Yellow Water billabong on a river cruise. Learn about the natural history of the wetlands from your guide as you look for wild birdlife and crocodiles poking above the water’s calm surface. 

Finally, delve deeper into the area’s indigenous history with a visit to the Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Or, upgrade to cap off your day with a spectacular 50-minute flight over Kakadu’s massive expanse and diverse landscapes (in place of Cultural Centre visit). At the end of your adventure, relax and soak up the scenery on the return drive to Darwin, where your tour concludes with hotel drop-off in the evening.

The tour was superb. Aat kings are the best at this game. very comfortable, very informative and amusing at times. The time Viator gave me on my printed receipt was 20minutes later than AAT Kings time schedule. Fortunately they came back to my hotel for me.
