THIS TOUR ONLY OPERATES FOR A SHORT PERIOD IN WET SEASON FEB – MARCH, DEPENDING ON WATER LEVELS
The wet season produces some absolutely magnificent scenery in the Territory’s Top End. This is the time of the year our Wetlands flood. In Kakadu the flooding cuts off the road access to Ubirr Rock, an icon of the World Heritage-listed National Park. Ubirr and the Magela Wetlands are absolutely stunning at this time of the year. The good news is that you can get to see the splendour of both during a narrow window of opportunity in the peak of the seasonal flooding on this Ubirr Combo Tour.
Kakadu Cultural Tours operates the Ubirr Combo Tour and Magela Wetlands Cruise Experience as a cruise through the flooded Magela Creek and floodplain margin and returns to the Ubirr side of the creek where a tour vehicle takes visitors on to Ubirr Rock. As it is otherwise impossible to travel to the site, you will virtually have exclusive access to the magnificent Ubirr artsite. After taking in the intrigue of the rock art, absorbing a little of the traditional indigenous knowledge systems and the spectacle of the flooded plains from the top of the rock it’s back for another crossing of the flooded Magela Creek and back to Jabiru.
