‘My son and I recently did this day trip to Kakadu. What a great experience. The scenery, the wildlife, just fantastic. This is one trip that should be compulsory for all Australians, and of course, visiting tourists as well. We only wished we could have spent more time there.’

  • What You Can Expect

    This popular Kakadu National Park Tour from Darwin is a truly amazing day out. Any day tour to Kakadu can only cover a handful of the highlights, but this one ensures that you tick off two of the park’s signature experiences — a cruise on the sublime Yellow Water Billabong, and the chance to see the epic Indigenous rock art on display at Nourlangie.

    The tour departs from the city at around 6.30am and heads east along the Arnhem Highway and deep into Kakadu. You’ll travel through a variety of landscapes and enjoy informative commentary on points of interest from your guide.

    Your first stop is the Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Warradjan is the name for the pig-nosed turtle in the local Gundjeihmi language, and the centre’s architectural design references the shape of its namesake. You’ll have time to look at interesting exhibits about the life and culture of the region’s traditional owners.

    Warradjan is located adjacent to a vast wetland area known as Yellow Water (which is part of the South Alligator River). It’s renowned for its abundant birdlife and resident crocodiles — both freshies and salties. Here you’ll board your Yellow Water cruise, which is one of Kakadu’s most popular activities. Operated by Indigenous-owned Kakadu Tourism, the cruise takes around two hours and is a magical experience.

    Following lunch under the trees at Cooinda, a 30-minute drive east will bring you to Nourlangie — one of Kakadu’s most famous Indigenous rock art sites. There are over 5,000 rock art sites across the park, which combine to document one of the oldest continuous histories of any group of people in the world. Nourlangie is one of the most accessible. Some of the art is believed to date back 20,000 years.

    This Kakadu National Park Tour from Darwin is a once in lifetime experience and offers a comfortable and relaxed way to see a truly stunning part of Australia.
