What You Can Expect

Kakadu, Nourlangie and Yellow Waters Tour from Darwin

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. 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.

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.

This tour covers a large amount of territory and results in a very day. The driver Steve was very informative and made the most of the many venues we visited. The sights are great esp. Nourlangie. The historical significance of Nourlangie is not to be missed. I bought a Lighting Man shirt and took great pics. The only drawback is the amount of time on the bus. Given the territory covered its worth a very long day.

Great trip, well worth the time spent travelling. Great guide Paul who shared his knowledge of the area in an informative manner and also humorous anecdotes, very professional. The boat tour led by Reuben was brilliant, the breadth of knowledge that he has about his land was amazing. We saw an amazing number of plants and wildlife, from birds to buffalo to crocodiles. Would do this tour again when next in NT. They also made sure that everyone on our tour kept hydrated. It was obvious that these guides loved this part of Australia.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

This tour was fantastic. I can thoroughly recommend adding the flight as you have an excellent perspective of the vastness and beauty of the park. It is so extensive and the rock formations are remarkable. Best seen from the air to appreciate the vastness of the region. The rest of the trip was also excellent. Saw lots of crocodiles, birds, brumbies and buffalo.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2017

It is a long day out as distances to the Kakadu from Darwin are great but our guide Deb was amazingly good at keeping up an interesting and amusing commentary. The boat trip was a highlight as was our walk to see ancient aboriginal art. Great lunch. Excellent day out.
