Day 2 Yellow Water, Nourlangie Rock Art Site and Ubirr
We continue our 5 Day Kakadu, Arnhem Land, Litchfield & Katherine Tour by joining the world famous Yellow Water Cruise. This is an award winning cruise and is Aboriginal owned and centers around a billabong system that is home to some remarkable and diverse wildlife. Crocodile spotting is only one the the many wildlife viewing opportunities on this unique water way.
Head further up the Kakadu Highway to Nourlangie Rock Art Site and Lookout where you can learn how the Aboriginal people lived in this area through changing times. After lunch we visit the Bowali Information Centre “Kakadu National Park Headquarters” where you can view audio-visual presentations and visit the Marrawuddi Gallery that showcases art by local Kakadu Artists and artists from the wider region.
Later in the afternoon we arrive at Ubirr Rock Art Site and Lookout in the East Alligator Region of Kakadu where you experience a wide range of ancient Aboriginal rock art. Learn the Rainbow Serpent story and climb the Nadab Lookout for a magnificent panoramic view over the floodplain and beyond into Arnhem Land. Enjoy the sunset over the escarpment country before heading back to camp for the night.
Day 3 Arnhem Land
Today we head across the infamous Cahill’s Crossing that separates Kakadu from Arnhem Land. You will experience Ancient Rock Art with an experienced local guide at Injalak Hill. The view from Injalk Hill takes in the amazing country side and Escarpment country. Visit the Injalak Art Centre where you can purchase some amazing art and see some artists at work. Return to camp for dinner and a well earned rest.
Day 4 Gunlom Falls – Katherine
Today we make our way to Gunlom Falls for the morning and enjoy the beauty that this area offers. Enjoy the lower plunge pool or you may choose to hike to the top of the falls where you will experience Kakadu’s very own, natural infinity pool. For the very active you may hike to the rear of the falls where you will be rewarded with a swim under the waterfall. After a much needed break and some lunch we jump back on board and head toward the township of Katherine.
Visit Top Didj Cultural Experience where you can interact with Top End Aboriginal artist Manuel Pamkal. He is happy to answer questions about aboriginal culture whilst being educated on the style of his paintings, learn about the weapons used and how he lived off the land. This evening we enjoy another dinner at our campsite before another well earned rest.
