Overview

Experience the natural wonders and ancient cultural heritage of Kakadu — Australia’s largest national park. On this full-day tour from Darwin, cruise along the Yellow Water billabong while spotting crocs basking on the banks. Admire ancient Aboriginal art at the ‘desert museum’ of Nourlangie Rock, and delve deeper into indigenous history at the Warradjan Aboriginal Centre.
  • See Nourlangie Rock - the museum in the desert
  • Take a cruise on the Yellow River
  • See crocodiles basking in the sun
  • Enjoy lunch under the trees
  • Visit Warradjan Aboriginal Centre and learn the history of the area
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. 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.

Be warned, as this tour states, it will be a 12 hour day and it was! Though it may not be totally known or understood, but Australia is about the same size as the US, so going from Darwin to Kakadu is like going from Washington state to the Dakota's. It is a very long distance to traverse, but our driver and bus were up for the challenge. The bus was very comfortable and our awesome driver brought much Aussie wit to keep us awake, present and informed on the journey. Our first stop was just for a break, but imagine seeing wallabee's just bouncing around your local gas station and you will understand the impact of this tour. Our personal favorite was the yellow water tour where we saw many amazing creatures and had a very large crocodile just swim along side the boat for several minutes. There is plenty to see and do and this tour encompasses many passions whether it is understanding the local's, see vast landscapes or animal encounters. The only warning would be about the northern territory flies. They are everywhere and love being in you face, so if you have a chance to purchase a face net, I highly recommend it. True this may not be the fashion look you are going for, but swatting at flies as they creep into your eyes, ears, nose etc, may encourage you to look a little goofy for a few hours.

The history and cultural aspects of Nourlangie Rock is aspiring knowledge for all Australians. Rock art depicts many stories.

Excellent day out. Would strongly recommend paying the 250 AUD each to do the scenic flight, absolutely stunning! Driver/guide, Dave, very informative and friendly. Yellow river cruise was brilliant and we even saw a crocodile! Long day but well worth it.

Disappointed. Spent whole day in a bus and saw nothing. The only good thing was the Yellow Water tour. The rest was wasting time and driving around. Finally, we’ve spent 20 min at Nourlangie, didn’t even get the chance to walk to the lookout.
In short, won’t see much of Kakadu.

Its a very long day but well worth the visit. The Yellow Waters tour with the guide was very informative with all the different bird life he pointed out to us.Our coach guide was very informative and kept us all amused with his stories. Lunch was excellent and the aboriginal centre had some lovely gifts to buy.
