DAY 1 – LITCHFIELD IN THE WET SEASON

Begin your 2 day tropical adventure with a convenient 6 am pickup from the front of your accommodation.  From that point forward you are on Top End Time and at the complete mercy of mother nature.  A sometimes moody host she can decide to put on a bit of a show (storm) or demonstrate her tender side of rainbows and butterflies. Lets hope for both !

Our playground / classroom today is Litchfield National Park.  Sporting a variety of walks, swims spots, unique wildlife and wonderous views we are going to deep dive into it all. Key beauties such as Wangi Falls, Florence Falls, Tolmer Falls !  These are staples of this tour.  As too the crazy big termite mounds and their enigmatic cousins … the magnetic termites.  Try some seasonal bush foods of the non-toxic variety and learn of the uses of many more.

Having sampled the gems of Litchfield it is time to journey through the the gold fields of the Top End to access Kakadu from the south.  The southern region of Kakadu is known for dramatic views, gullies, cliffs and ecosystems which differ greatly from the central and northern regions.  A key feature is the ever present Arnhem Land Escarpment.  At over 300 km long it will be our one constants as we move north through the park and and an ever present reminder as to the antiquity of the region.  Over 1800 million years young !

Arriving late in the afternoon at the oasis of Cooinda spend some time getting settled into your accommodation before enjoying a relaxing beverage and a swim in the expansive resort pool.  Sit back and enjoy the show (Tropical Summer Storm).

Accommodation tonight will be in the Cooinda Lodge Rooms – fully airconditioned / ensuited
Dinner – dine at Mimi’s Restaurant at the lodge (not included), Catering included – Morning tea, Lunch

DAY 2 – KAKADU IN THE WET SEASON

Waking early we board the award winning Yellow Waters Sunrise Wetland Cruise for 2 hours of immersion in the wildlife and environments of the Top End.  A wetland of international significance and home to all the must see aquatic and avian fauna.  Crocodiles will be swimming next to you.  Birds will be going about their day and you will be amongst it all. Following the cruise a breakfast banquet can be sourced from the inhouse restaurant (Mimi’s).  Take in the aroma of fresh coffee and the varied offerings provided at your leisure.

Having had a great start to the day it is now time to visit Warradjan Culture Centre.  Shaped like the rare ‘Pig Nosed Turtle’ it is a treasure trove of an array of indigenous culture tools, information and insights.  A great way to add to your expanding knowledge base and preparation for what comes next. After Warradjan we venture out into the wild to actually walk amongst the rich collection of art which adorns the rock walls of Burrungkuy (Nourlangie).  Here we will see great examples of the various styles and stories painted by people of the region as well as a record of changing environment and human endeavour stretching back over 10,000 years.

From this point you can choose to get above it all in a light air craft scenic flight (optional extra).
