Day 1: Darwin

Today is a free day to explore Australia's tropical capital city, Darwin. Darwin's climate sets the scene for a variety of unique outdoor experiences and activities thanks to its balmy weather and the friendly, easygoing attitude of locals. Ride the swell at the wave pool, eyeball a croc in the 'cage of death', or do as the locals do and enjoy one of Darwin's famous Asian-inspired markets.

Day 2: Darwin to Kakadu, 250km

The rare and unspoiled beauty of Kakadu National Park is only a three-hour drive from Darwin. Drive along the Arnhem Highway stopping at the Adelaide River for a Jumping Crocodile Cruise. Continue on your journey and head to Ubirr in the East Alligator region of Kakadu National Park for a spectacular sunset over the surrounding floodplains and escarpments.

Day 3: Kakadu

Kakadu is a World Heritage-listed site and Australia's largest national park; explore and cruise its waterways to see crocs and birdlife, walk through ancient Aboriginal rock art galleries, or join a guided tour. This morning, head towards the indigenous rock art site of Nourlangie (Burrungi). The Nourlangie art site is located in an outlying formation of the Arnhem Land Escarpment. Make your way towards your accommodation at Cooinda Lodge Kakadu beside Yellow Water Billabong and stop at Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre. The centre's large display, developed by Kakadu's Aboriginal owners, provides detailed information about Aboriginal culture in Kakadu. After checking into your accommodation, enjoy a sunset Yellow Water Cruise where crocodiles and birds are seen on the flood plain amongst paperbark, pandanus, and fresh water mangroves, or view the sunset while flying over some of Kakadu's amazing wetlands on a scenic helicopter flight.

Day 4: Kakadu to Katherine, 300km

Continue to the southern end of Kakadu National Park to Gunlom Falls. At the top of Gunlom, take a relaxing and well-deserved dip in the crystal clear pools. Or one of Kakadu's lesser known plunge pools and waterfalls, Maguk, is truly a gem for all to experience. Located an hour's drive south from Cooinda, make the 1km journey through lush monsoon forest to discover a pristine waterfall and the enticing plunge pool. Afterwards, head south along Stuart Highway to Pine Creek, a small town that experienced a rush of gold in 1871. A further 90km down the road is Katherine, the gateway to six national parks and over 10 nature parks, reserves and conservation areas, including Katherine Gorge (Nitmiluk National Park). Nitmiluk National Park is only a short 30km drive from Katherine where you can stay in style overnight at Cicada Lodge.

Day 5: Katherine to Darwin, 320km

There are many ways to experience the spectacular Nitmiluk National Park (Nitmiluk Gorge) and its world-renowned gorge system - you can walk, swim, canoe, boat or fly. Take the morning to discover the history, beauty and culture of one of Australia's most spectacular destinations. Make your way back to Katherine, stopping at Top Didj Cultural Experience & Art Gallery for a genuine Aboriginal cultural experience or visit Katherine School of the Air, the largest classroom in the world! Travel back to Darwin this afternoon.

Day 6: Litchfield National Park or Tiwi Islands day trip

Darwin is a great base for day trips to Litchfield National Park or the Tiwi Islands. Litchfield National Park is renowned for its accessible, unspoiled wilderness of monsoon rainforests and waterfalls that flow year-round. Approximately 90 minutes' from Darwin, swim in the plunge pool below the permanent spring-fed Florence Falls or wade through the rocky pools at Buley Rockhole. Alternatively, take a trip across the water from Darwin to discover the beautiful Tiwi Islands and find out why they are nicknamed the 'Island of Smiles'. The Tiwi Islands are situated 100km to the north of Darwin and are popular for their Aboriginal culture, tropical island scenery, and blue-water fishing.
