Kakadu National Park is a World Heritage Area covering some 20,000 square kms.
Waterfalls tumble from the red cliffs of the Arnhem Land escarpment into shady pools; tranquil wetlands teem with animal and birdlife, while 40,000 years of Aboriginal cultural heritage is on display in the numerous hidden rock art galleries.
This active, walking based itinerary is designed for trekkers who want to get beyond the regular tourist sites. While visits to Kakadu’s main attractions are included, including a cruise on Yellow Waters (a favourite haunt of saltwater crocodiles), it’s when you go for a walk beyond the main tourist sites that Kakadu will reveal its true magic.
The collection of full-day bushwalks venture in to remote gorges and sparkling waterfalls, as well as visiting ancient rock art seen by very few visitors.
The upgraded semi-permanent campsites encourage trekkers to relax in idyllic tropical surrounds. The itinerary varies to make the most of the season, choosing the best walks and waterfalls as the wet season floodwaters recede and access opens up.
You will return to Darwin having enjoyed a complete adventure across the full range of tropical wilderness of Australia’s Top End.
