5 Day Alice Springs to Darwin Explorer incl Kakadu SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Kick off this adventure with a visit to the iconic Karlu Karlu, or 'Devils Marbles'. Hear the story behind the formation of these gigantic boulders before continuing on to Tennant Creek for lunch. In the evening visit a true blue Aussie pub, perhaps sharing a couple of beers with the friendly locals before camping out beneath the stars for an evening of peaceful outback solitude.
Start the day with an exploration of Nitmiluk National Park. Meaning the 'Place of the Cicada Dreaming' in the Jawoyn language, it’s a stunning place to explore. Take a short walk to Barrawei Lookout for an incredible view of Katherine Gorge before learning about the significance of this area to the Jawoyn people. Stop for a swim in the refreshing waters of Edith Falls before journeying to tropical Darwin, the Territory’s culture-rich capital city.
A cosmopolitan city in Australia's tropical Top End, Darwin has a relaxed atmosphere and a fascinating multicultural population. Litchfield National Park is famous for its beautiful rainforests, scenic waterfalls and safe swimming holes. A stunning region of freshwater billabongs and monsoon forests, Mary River National Park is an outstanding fishing and bird-watching destination where you can also spot a few saltwater crocs.
Home to colourful rock art and spectacular scenery, Kakadu National Park is a vast wilderness of rainforest, wetlands, waterfalls and amazing wildlife.
Known for its balmy weather and diverse cultural influences, Darwin has grown from a remote trading outpost into the Northern Territory's modern capital without losing its frontier charm.
