Day 4 Alice Springs

Enjoy a free day getting to know Alice Springs on your terms. Small though the town may be, there are plenty of things to see and do here. Take a stroll through the Olive Pink Botanic Garden, pop into the Alice Springs Reptile Centre or check out the site of the world's only dry river regatta. In the evening, why not organise to have dinner at one of the local pubs for a true-blue Aussie experience.

Day 6 Katherine Gorge/Darwin

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.

Day 7 Darwin/Kakadu

Kick off this Kakadu adventure with a traditional welcome from the Limilngan–Wulna people. Learn about the culture and ancient history of this Indigenous group, 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.
ACCOM: Permanent tented camp (with shared facilities) - 1

Day 8 Twin and Jim Jim Falls

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 a sense 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.
ACCOM: Camping (with shared facilities) - 1

Day 9 Kakadu/Darwin

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.
