Kakadu, Australia’s largest national park, sees many visitors opting for a multi-day tour. This tour is ideal for those short on time or on a budget, allowing you to take in the highlights on a day trip from Darwin. Admire the desert museum of Nourlangie Rock, discover Kakadu’s Aboriginal history at the Warradjan Aboriginal Centre, and spot crocodiles on a cruise along the Yellow Water billabong.
What to Expect

Your tour begins with an early-morning pickup from your Darwin hotel and an around 2-hour drive to Kakadu aboard an air-conditioned bus. During the journey, listen as your guide tells you about Kakadu National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site spanning an incredible 20,000 square miles (32,180 square kilometers). Hear how the park is famous for both its natural wonders—including its large population of crocodiles and other wildlife—and its cultural heritage, with a long history of occupation by Aboriginal communities.

On arrival, the first stop of the day is Nourlangie Rock, a dramatic sandstone monolith nicknamed the “desert museum” for its remarkably preserved examples of ancient Aboriginal rock art. Take a guided scenic walk around the rock, stopping to peek into ancient cave settlements, admire the artworks etched into the cliffside, and learn more about the park’s earliest inhabitants.

After a break for a picnic lunch (included), hop aboard a boat for a cruise along the Yellow Water billabong. Take in the unique landscapes of Kakadu as you glide through its wetlands and mangrove swamps. Along the way, look out for native wildlife, most notably the saltwater crocodiles that can often be seen lazing along the banks.

The final stop of the day is at the Warradjan Cultural Centre, where you’ll gain an even deeper understanding of Kakadu’s indigenous heritage and the importance of the native lands to the Aboriginal community.

Return to the bus for the return journey to Darwin, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Great day trip to iconic national park

This trip had two major highlights for me the aboriginal rock art and the cruise on the aligátor river yellow water. It is full day large bus trip with some walking maybe 2ks.

A Great Day Trip

I am not much into culture and cultural visits but really enjoyed this very long day, which didn't seem very long because you were always either doing something or listening to the very knowledgeable driver pointing out things or places along the way. From start...More
