9 Day Territory Unleashed South Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 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 tribe, 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.

Day 2 Kakadu National Park

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 the often startling realisation 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.

Day 3 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.

Day 4 Darwin/Katherine Gorge

Drive out to Nitmiluk National Park. Stop by Edith Falls for a quick dip before arriving in Katherine Gorge. Learn about the region's cultural significance to the local Jawoyn Aboriginal people and continue on to the one pub town of Daly Waters.

Day 5 Daly Waters/Devils Marbles (Karlu Karlu)/Alice Springs

Explore the sacred site of Karlu Karlu (Devil's Marbles), then cross the tropic of Capricorn and arrive in the town of Alice Springs.

Day 7 Alice Springs/Kata Tjuta/Uluru

Welcome to rough and ready, but decidedly charming, Alice Springs. Get the adventure underway with a visit to a working camel farm (and perhaps with a ride on one of these iconic creatures). Hop to it exploring the 36 domes of Kata Tjuta on a Valley of the Winds hike, then watch the sun set over ginormous Uluru.

Day 8 Uluru to Kings Canyon

Shake off the brisk morning air with a walk around the base of the world's biggest rock. Learn about the sacred significance of Uluru to the local Aboriginal people and admire their traditional arts and craft work at the Cultural Centre. Spend a night camped under the stars in Watarrka National Park.

Day 9 Kings Canyon to Alice Springs

Trek along the crater rim of Kings Canyon, savouring the incredible views over the Amphitheatre, then descend into the canyon and discover the park's Lost City and Garden of Eden. The adventure winds up upon arrival back in Alice Springs.
