Day 1 Darwin/Litchfield/Mary River

Say a quick "G'day" to tropical Darwin before heading out to the natural splendour of Litchfield National Park. Discover enchanting waterfalls and freshen up with a dip before travelling into Wulna Country to be welcomed by the Limilngan-Wulna people, the traditional owners of this area. Learn about bush tucker, test out a didgeridoo or try your hand at basket weaving before venturing out to the Mary River Wetlands – a hotspot for bird watching and crocodile spotting.

Day 2 Mary River/Kakadu

Journey to Kakadu National Park, an enclave of Indigenous Australian culture, for an insight into the traditional values of one of the world's oldest civilisations. View ancient rock art at Ubirr, head out on a nature hike for incredible views out over the Nadab floodplain and take a splash in Maguk (Barramundi Gorge) before setting up camp for the evening.

Day 3 Kakadu/Katherine

Located in Kakadu’s lush heart, marvel at the 200-metre-tall Jim Jim Falls before continuing on to Twin Falls. Perhaps get an up-close experience of the falls on a boat and boardwalk trip. In the afternoon, journey through the once-bustling gold-mining town of Pine Creek to reach Nitmiluk National Park, a beautiful place to camp for the night.

Day 4 Nitmiluk National Park/Darwin

Consider taking a slow and steady boat cruise through the tranquil waters of Katherine Gorge, all the time feeling dwarfed by the imposing 70-metre-high walls separating this mighty chasm. Edith Falls is the next stop, where a refreshing swim is on the cards. Get a final glance of the Australian Outback on the trip back to Darwin. After arrival, perhaps head out for a beer to celebrate this journey in Australia’s Top End.
