4 DAYS 3 NIGHTS ICONIC DARWIN KAKADU & LITCHFIELD NATIONAL PARK
DRW3NEXP 4D3N NORTHERN TERRITORY 01 APR 2018 - 31 MAR 2019
TRIP DESCRIPTION

Darwin in the Top End of the Northern Territory has two distinct seasons, the 'wet' and the 'dry'. While November to April is referred to as the ‘wet', and May to October is the ‘dry' season; in the vast expanse of Kakadu National Park, the local Aboriginal people recognise six different seasons.

There are many festivals from May to October with relatively cool weather and peak visitor time. Darwin really comes alive at this time of year as everyone makes the most of the clear skies and heads outdoors. This is a great time to recline in a deckchair and watch a movie under the stars at the open-air Deckchair Cinema; or watch the sunset over the Indian Ocean after visiting the famous Mindil Beach Markets.

When we turn onto the Arnhem Highway, the Marrakai Plains will provide a beautiful backdrop for your onward journey.

Kakadu National Park - Covering an area of more than 19,800 square kilometres, World Heritage listed Kakadu is the largest National Park in Australia. The combination of mangrove fringed coastal areas, expansive flood plains, lowland hills, open woodland and forest habitats make Kakadu one of the most diverse landscapes you’ll ever experience. Be amazed at the population of wildlife in the water, on the land and in the air – Kakadu is home to a myriad of animals, hundreds of bird species and thousands of different insects and plants. Marvel at the concentration of rock art sites that illustrates Aboriginal culture found at Kakadu, some dating back 50,000 years.

Yellow Water Billabong Cruise - Join your local guide for a cruise on the Yellow Water Billabong. The picturesque yellow water is home to thousands of saltwater crocodiles and up to 60 species of colourful birdlife.

Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre - The Bininj people are the traditional custodians of Kakadu National Park and after lunch in Cooinda we visit the Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre to introduce you to their way of life, a ‘must see’ for all visitors to the region. See artefacts and videos that illustrate stories the traditional owners wish to share with visitors, ranging from personal histories to bush tucker.

Nourlangie - Be mesmerised as you wander the Nourlangie rock art site. It provided shelter to indigenous people for many thousands of years – and while taking shelter, the rock evolved into a canvas that illustrates their deep spiritual culture. The 1.5km walk around the base of the rock, led by your Driver Guide, gives you the opportunity to see many different forms of Aboriginal rock art.

Boarding early for the drive to Litchfield National Park down ‘the Track’ (Stuart Highway), you’ll be entertained by your Driver Guide with tales both tall and true of the history of Australia’s longest highway.

Batchelor - The gorgeous town of Batchelor is the gateway to Litchfield National Park. Up until WWII, Batchelor was a sleepy little hollow. Then it became an allied air force base and the population grew quickly. When uranium was discovered near Batchelor in 1949, the town once again grew until the mine was closed in 1963. Today, Batchelor’s townsfolk love to host visitors to Litchfield National Park and it’s here that you can enjoy morning tea (own expense) at one of their local cafés.

Litchfield National Park - Established in 1986, Litchfield National Park is a truly stunning destination. Here you can take in the splendour of thundering falls, rainforest pockets and sacred historic sites.

Termite Mounds - The termite mounds found at Litchfield National Park are the incredible architectural works of local termites. Complete with arches, tunnels, chimneys and nursery chambers, the mounds will leave you mystified. Listen and learn as your Driver Guide explains the difference between Cathedral and Magnetic mounds.

Florence Falls - View the spectacular double waterfalls of Florence Falls from a high vantage point before making your way down the stairs to take a dip in the gorgeous plunge pool, if you need to cool down a little. Head back up through forest and open woodland. There’s also time for an interpretive walk through the scenic bush and monsoon vine forest.

Tolmer Falls - One of the three major waterfalls along the western face of the Tabletop Range, Tolmer Falls is a truly spectacular sight. You’ll marvel at the water cascading down into the deep waterhole at the base of the falls, which is home to several colonies of rare ghost bats and orange horseshoe bats.
