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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2017

Great day trip, tour guide full of information. We went in the wet season so on our Yellow Waters Tour only saw 1 crocodile.
Highly recommend.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2017

Really wonderful and extraordinary tour. Comfortable coach and as on all our Australian tours, guide was well up on all aspects of the trip, Unfortunately we didn't see much wild life but that was not the guides' fault. On yellow River cruise saw lots of different species of birds but could not find crocodiles, Local guide was determined to find a crocodile and eventually did find one. resulted in getting back to bus late but taken in good stride by bus guide. Tour really worth doing.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

Early start and very late finish for this big day trip, but worth every hour and dollar!!
Had a confirmation call from the great team at AAT where I went to pay for the Park entry before departure.
Tour guides were very professional, informative, and friendly with great sense of humour for a big day.
Hadn't planned on the 50min 'add on' flight over Kakadu, but will never regret doing it at the last minute. - Breathtaking!! even over ex Ranger Uranium mine.
Yellow Waters was also a great highlight, seeing soooo many crocs, emu's, sea eagles, water buffalo, and an array of birds including cobalt blue kingfisher.
This tour from Darwin tops most others I have been on. Booking through Viator was so easy and quick.
Just remember your hat and sunscreen for some of the walks, and because of the big day, you may need some nibbles for the bus trip back. This tour should not be missed.
