By Viator, January 2018

4.5 72 Reviews | Add your review

Measuring in at almost 12,500 square miles (20,000 square kilometers), Kakadu is Australia’s biggest national park, renowned for its dramatic natural wonders, incredible biodiversity, and impressive cultural heritage. From nature lovers to adventurers, there's a tour to fit any travel style—here are your options.

For the Time-Crunched Visitor
You could spend days exploring Kakadu’s wild landscape, but travelers short on time can still cram the highlights into a day trip. Full-day tours from Darwin often include hotel pickup and lunch to ensure you maximize your time, along with a cruise along the Yellow Water Billabong to spot saltwater crocodiles and a visit to the Warradjan Aboriginal Centre. 

For Nature Enthusiasts
Multi-day tours allow you to venture further into the wild landscapes of Kakadu, visiting natural wonders such as Twin Falls Gorge, the Mikinj Valley, and Jim Jim Falls. On a 2- or 3-day tour, you’ll have time to enjoy scenic bushwalks, stop at spectacular viewpoints, and spot wildlife such as exotic birds, frill-necked lizards, and Leichhardt’s grasshoppers. 

For the Adventurer
For the ultimate adventure, combine a visit to Kakadu National Park with stops at nearby attractions such as Litchfield National Park and the Katherine Gorge (Nitmiluk National Park). Explore off-road on a 4WD outback safari, swim beneath waterfalls, tuck into typical Aussie campfire food, and camp out beneath the stars.

For History Buffs
Kakadu is home to some of the most important Aboriginal sites in the Northern Territory, and those looking to learn can take a Kakadu National Park tour led by an Aboriginal guide. Along the way, stop to admire ancient Aboriginal rock art at Nourlangie Rock and Ubirr Rock, take a Guluyambi cultural cruise along the East Alligator River, and hear the stories of the park’s traditional owners as you journey into Arnhem Land.
