Total Top End Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Darwin/Kakadu National Park

A colourful blend of frontier charm and a cosmopolitan attitude, Darwin is an exciting launch pad for a tour of Australia's Top End. After an early start from the tropical capital, venture deep into the wilderness of Kakadu National Park. Keep eyes peeled and cameras ready on a cruise down the river and spy crocodiles patrolling the waters. Be captivated by the ever-changing terrain and untamed natural beauty of Kakadu. Tour across the landscape, steeped in ancient Dreamtime history, learning how Indigenous tradition and culture has been maintained through the ages. Travel to Ubirr Rock to witness one of Australia's finest Aboriginal rock art collections and admire 360 degree-views of the region.

Day 2 Kakadu National Park/Katherine

After breakfast, head out to explore more of the Kakadu wetlands before an energising swim in croc-free waters. Travel south to the historic gold mining centre of Pine Creek, stopping for another refreshing dip along with way - this time by the cascading Edith Falls. Settle in for the night at the historic Springvale Homestead camp and fall asleep listening to the dull chatter of the Outback at night.

Day 3 Katherine Gorge/Mt Bundy Station

Cruise along the tranquil waters of Katherine Gorge on a boat tour or take the more adventurous option and head out by canoe. Formed by the Katherine River flowing from Arnhem Land to the Timor Sea, Katherine Gorge is simply breathtaking. Travel north across the sunbaked Outback to camp for the night at remote Mt Bundy Station - once the largest cattle station in the Top End. Enjoy some classic Northern Territory treats for dinner, perhaps a juicy crocodile or kangaroo steak.

Day 4 Litchfield National Park/Darwin

Filled with waterholes and waterfalls, Litchfield National Park is well deserving of all its hype and the perfect place to soak up the tranquillity of the tropics. Exploring Litchfield is the perfect way to complete this tour, visiting Florence Falls, Wangi Falls and the Buley Rockholes. Stroll through steamy rainforests and cool off with a dip in one of Litchfield park's picture-perfect swimming holes. As with all good things, this Top End tour must come to an end. Hit the road and head back to Darwin to perhaps enjoy a night on the town toasting the adventure with new friends.
