Covering nearly 20,000 square miles (32,180 square km) of rivers, wetlands and ancient sandstone mesas, the Northern Territory’s Kakadu National Park is the largest park in Australia. Your full-day wilderness adventure begins with early morning pickup at your Darwin hotel and an approximately 2-hour drive to the park.

When you arrive, visit the remarkable collection of ancient Aboriginal rock art in the desert at Nourlangie Rock. Take a journey thousands of years back in time as you see stories of daily life depicted through well-preserved cave paintings. Break for a picnic lunch surrounded by the park’s dramatic scenery. 

In the afternoon, glide along the Yellow Water billabong on a river cruise. Learn about the natural history of the wetlands from your guide as you look for wild birdlife and crocodiles poking above the water’s calm surface. 

Finally, delve deeper into the area’s indigenous history with a visit to the Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre. At the end of your adventure, relax and soak up the scenery on the return drive to Darwin, where your tour concludes with hotel drop-off in the evening.

Bus trip to Kakadu
Robert_M
, Oct 2021
Although a long trip after reaching Norlangie Rock and looking at the aboriginal artwork it was worthwhile. After driving along to have lunch which was quite enjoyable we went for river boat cruise on Yellow river and we saw a lot of interesting birdlife and some crocodiles as well.

Excellent from start to end of day. Coach drivers very informative. Our Guide Dennis (with 2 n’s) on the Yellow Waters Cruise, gave the most inspiring insight into crocodiles in their habitat. The pride he displays in his heritage was the best I have ever heard. Although a very long day - pick up 6.15am drop off home 8.00pm, the drivers/guides continually kept us entertained with information all the way. Thank you

Kakadu in wet season a must do
Nadene_M
, Dec 2020
A very long day but worth the trip. The scenic flight is worth doing as you get to see how vast the area of kakadu is along with waterfalls inacessabile during the wet season in full flow. It's awesome. The boat ride is excellent, managed to see a couple of crocs which can be elusive in wet season. The area has already flooded and was a site to behold. Aboriginal rock art is also a treat with a little walk in the heat, flies were annoying.
