Day 1 Darwin to Kakadu
We begin our 2 Day Kakadu East Alligator River tour travelling along the Arnhem Highway, passing major river systems and wetland regions, into Kakadu National Park. Located 257 kilometres east of Darwin, Kakadu covers 20,000 square kilometres of landscape varying from rocky escarpment that is home to historic Aboriginal rock art dating back thousands of years, to the floodplains that are abundant with wildlife. Visit Warradjan Cultural Centre to view the informative displays depicting the traditions of the Aboriginal people in Kakadu. Join your local guide on a Yellow Water Cruise on the world famous Yellow Water Billabong. Search for salwaer crocodiles and the colourful range of bird life for which this region is renowned. After lunch, stop at Nourlangie, where your Driver Guide will lead you on a walk to view the rock art galleries. (Lunch included)

This morning we continue our 2 Day Kakadu and East Alligator River tour as we make our way out to the East Alligator Region of Kakadu. Here we explore the World Heritage area of Ubirr, whre you’ll climb up through the ancient Aboriginal rock art galleries, believed to be 20,000 years old, to the lookout for the view over the surrounding wetlands. Join the Guluyambi Cruise along the East Alligator River. An Aboriginal guide will provide an insight into their culture, including local mythology, the river’s abundant food chain, as well as bush survival skills.
