Day 1 Darwin/Litchfield/Mary River

Leaving Darwin, head to Litchfield National Park, home to dozens of freshwater waterfalls and swimming holes that make for an enticing dip. Following lunch, it's on to Wulna Country where the Limilngan–Wulna people have some tips on offer for finding bush tucker and playing the didgeridoo. The day comes to an end in the gorgeous Mary River Wetlands – a flat network of waterways brimming with crocs and native bird species – before turning in for the night at our campsite.

Day 2 Kakadu National Park

Venture off-road in 4x4s to the World Heritage-listed site of Kakadu National Park. Spend time taking in the plunging 200 m waterfall of Jim Jim Falls and the smaller cascades of nearby Twin Falls. Then hop aboard a boat ride through the waterways and follow national park guides on a boardwalk excursion. Tonight's stay is in a permanent camp in Kakadu National Park.

Day 3 Mary River

Behold ancient Aboriginal rock art at Ubirr, then walk to the top of a lookout for some great views over the wide expanse of the Nardab Floodplain. Next up is Maguk (Barramundi Gorge), where a hike is rewarded with a reviving swim in the cooling plunge pools.

Day 4 Darwin

Depending on the season, opt to set out on a cruise or canoe between the red rock walls of Katherine Gorge. At over 23 million years old, this natural marvel is one of the Top End’s true wonders. Travel northwards through the harsh Aussie Outback, stopping for another refreshing dip en route – this time in Edith Falls. Then it's back to Darwin, where your Territory explorer trip comes to an end.
