DAY 4 Darwin - Kakadu
Today you will experience the magic of Kakadu National Park, the Top End’s most important asset. Indigenous Australians have inhabited the land for more than 50,000 years, leaving behind incredible galleries of rock art and more than 5,000 historical and cultural sites, though only a few are open to visitors. Add Kakadu’s magnificent scenery, unique flora and fauna, and you have one of the world’s greatest natural wonders. Your first stop en-route to Kakadu is the banks of the Adelaide River for a thrilling experience aboard the Jumping Croc Cruise. With knowledgeable guides leading the way, learn about these magnificent creatures while watching them propel themselves high out of the water to snatch their food. Back on dry land, journey into the national park and discover Ubirr Rock, the site of one of the best rock art galleries in the park. Next, continue to Cooinda where you will board the enchanting Yellow Water Sunset Cruise. Peacefully glide along the tranquil waters of the billabong, keeping an eye out for the native wildlife - and hopefully a crocodile, or two. What a spectacular way to end the day before settling in to the hotel nearby. BLD
