Itinerary

Kick off this Kakadu adventure with a traditional welcome from the Limilngan–Wulna people. Learn about the culture and ancient history of this Indigenous tribe, then journey to the Mary River Wetlands, where saltwater crocodiles rule the waters. Arrive in Ubirr for a spectacular sunset and the chance to see Aboriginal rock art that’s thousands of years old.
Take a boat cruise with a national park ranger through the chasm of a gorge to witness Twin Falls up close – the dwarfing magnitude of this chasm invokes the often startling realisation of just how small we really are. After lunch, hike to the base of Jim Jim Falls, where a swim or laze on the beach is an excellent way to wile away the afternoon.
Plunge into the refreshing waters of Maguk Gorge before working up a sweat hiking to the top of Gunlom Falls, where a series of swimming holes await your arrival. In the afternoon, head back to lively Darwin.
