Day 1: Darwin - Kakadu National Park - Yellow Water (L)
Depart Darwin and venture into the vast and diverse landscape of Kakadu National Park. Stop to visit Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre to learn a little about the park, its history, flora, fauna and ancient culture. Continue to Kakadu's most famous wetland area, Yellow Water billabong, for a cruise. Watch for crocodiles and the famous Kakadu birdlife. Following lunch, travel to Nourlangie Rock to view galleries of ancient Aboriginal artworks. As is evident from all the paintings, this has always been an area of great significance to local Aborigines.
Overnight: Mercure Kakadu Crocodile Hotel
Day 2: Twin Falls (L)
Travel by 4WD to the edge of the Arnhem Land escarpment and beautiful Jim Jim Falls, the largest waterfalls in the park. Enjoy a refreshing bushwalk through monsoonal forest surrounded by towering cliffs. Continue along the winding sand track to Twin Falls Gorge where there is time to explore this remote region. Note: Should seasonal conditions not permit visit to Twin Falls, it will be replaced with visit to Maguk (Barramundi Falls).
Day 3: Kakadu National Park - Ubirr - East Alligator River Cruise - Darwin (L)
Travel to Ubirr before joining the Guluyambi Cruise on the East Alligator River. By special permission, take a short walk into Arnhem Land accompanied by an Aboriginal guide and finish your day with a call into Bowali Visitor Centre to see the giant termite mounds.
Overnight: Mercure Kakadu Crocodile HotelImportant: The walk to Jim Jim falls is quite strenuous and an excellent level of fitness is required. Good hiking shoes are recommended for this walk. Swimming is not permitted at Twin Falls. If seasonal conditions do not permit a visit to Jim Jim or Twin Falls, it will be replaced with alternative touring.
This was an excellent tour, and I would highly recommend it. There were lots to see, especially if you took the optional joy flight at extra cost. We saw aboriginal art sites, waterfalls and plunge pools and the fabulous Yellow Waters wetlands area. The Croc hotel was fine with the meals adequate. There was one issue in that the Viator website and app suggested that the tour included some canoe paddling. This has not been the case for many years in the particular area and should be corrected. We liked the fact that the three days were actually 3 separate day tours, giving great variety and different people to mix with.
The tour delivered everything it stated, and my accommodation was much better than expected. Thank you
Sadly no waterfalls were working in the Jim Jim Falls/ Twin falls day. I was not expecting that. I did have a nice swim tho..

The tour was fascinating. There were three peaks: Yellow Water, Ubirr, East Alligator River.
The tour to the falls is beautiful. However, the guide suggested that we don't go all the way to Jim Jim Falls since the track is hard, so we stopped about half way. Retrospectively, it was a mistake. Rather than deterring us he should encourage and offer to help us. I am sure we could have made it.
Other than that we don't have any critique. It was great. The guide on the the third day, Robert, was super. The Crocodile Hotel is very good.
We were totally satisfied with the tour, the guides were friendly and knowledgeable...really glad we did the trip. Would recommend it and Viator to others

The tour description is a little out of date. There is no canoeing in Kakadu because of salt water crocodiles. The tour is actually the AAT Kings 3 Day Kakadu and Twin Falls Adventure. I travelled in early June but the road to Jim Jim Falls and Twin Falls were both still closed, so we visited Gunlom Falls (Echo Billabong from Crocodile Dundee) instead. There were different people in my tour group every day, either on a 1, 2, 3 or 4 day tour of Kakadu. On the last day before returning to Darwin my group of 26 people had to wait a considerable time for day trippers to get back from a cruise before we could all go back to Darwin with a full bus load.
