What's included in this trip
4WD Kakadu Litchfield Safari SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Visit the Litchfield National Park and escape the heat beside cascading tropical waterfalls and in refreshing swimming holes. Head west and meet the Limilngan-Wulna People, traditional owners of the land. This is an immensely sacred area for their people so the welcoming 'Cul Cul' is a humbling greeting. Discover more of the day-to-day culture and traditions by indulging in some bush-tucker, mastering your didgeridoo technique or perhaps creating a hand-woven treasure to take home. Wind down the day with a cruise along the spectacular Mary River Wetlands, where the local crocodiles are often kind enough to join us.
Hike through Ubirr and see ancient Aboriginal rock art that has survived almost 1500 years. Clamber up to a rocky lookout where the Nardab Floodplain, and aptly named East Alligator River, make for an astonishing view. This hike is rewarded with a splash in the plunge pools at Maguk (Barramundi Gorge) before retreating to camp for some campfire storytelling.
Put the 4x4 through its paces on the way to Jim Jim Falls. Often raging; sometimes a mere trickle, the falls are an epic feature of the landscape. Hike to the base before continuing to Twin Falls, where the Kakadu National Park operates a boat and boardwalk adventure to explore the stunning gorge and surrounding falls. Enjoy the tranquillity of this scenic gem before the return to Darwin marks the end of this 4x4 Kakadu and Litchfield Safari.
