About Australia

4 Day Kakadu/Katherine/ Litchfield Explorer Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Darwin/Litchfield/Mary River

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.

Day 2 Mary River/Kakadu

Home to colourful rock art and spectacular scenery, Kakadu National Park is a vast wilderness of rainforest, wetlands, waterfalls and amazing wildlife.

Day 3 Kakadu/Katherine

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.

Day 4 Nitmiluk National Park/Darwin

Consider taking a slow and steady boat cruise through the tranquil waters of Katherine Gorge, all the time feeling dwarfed by the imposing 70-metre-high walls separating this mighty chasm. Edith Falls is the next stop, where a refreshing swim is on the cards. Get a final glance of the Australian Outback on the trip back to Darwin. After arrival, perhaps head out for a beer to celebrate this journey in Australia’s Top End.
