WHAT TO EXPECT

View ancient Aboriginal rock art Enjoy cruising the famous Yellow Water Billabong Visit the Warradjan Cultural Centre
 

In the heart of the Top End is Kakadu National Park, World Heritage listed for its breathtaking landscape, wildlife and Aboriginal cultural significance. Situated 250 kilometres east of Darwin, there's plenty to see and do in this diverse landscape spanning over 19,000 square kilometres. Kakadu is so large that its weather pattern varies from the coast in the north to the sandstone valets of the south. No less than six major landforms are found within the park's borders. Cruise on the fabled Yellow Water Billabong or scale the escarpment for dramatic views of the mangrove fringed coastal areas, lowland hills and forest habitats. Here you will witness the richest concentration of flora in the Northern Territory, with more than 1700 plant species as a result of the park's geological, landform and habitat diversity. No matter which time of the year you visit, there's always something to admire. Kakadu is also home to one of the greatest recorded concentrations of rock art anywhere in the world, showcasing some of the best examples of Aboriginal rock art in Australia with Ubirr and Nourlangie recognized internationally. The rock canvases dating back 20,000 years are found in rocky outcrops that have provided shelter to the local Aboriginal inhabitants for thousands of years. The rock art is used for storytelling, education and religious significance. Arnhem Land is the perfect place to be immersed in the Aboriginal culture. The region has been occupied by indigenous people for tens of thousands of years. It is home to the Yolngu people, one of the largest indigenous groups in Australia and recognized as the birthplace of the iconic Australian wooden wind instrument, the didgeridoo. This culturally rich area was declared an Aboriginal Reserve in 1931 and all visitors require written permission from the traditional owners to enter.
 

World heritage listed and the largest National Park in Australia, Kakadu is one of the most diverse landscapes you will ever experience and you will be amazed at the population of wildlife in the water, on the land and in the air. See some of the most amazing terrains Australia has to offer on your way to and inside Kakadu National Park. Marvel at the concentration of rock art sites that illustrate Aboriginal culture found at Kakadu, some dating back 50,000 years. Travelling towards Kakadu along the Arnhem Highway, the Marrakai Plains will provide a beautiful backdrop for your onward journey. Visit the Warradjan Cultural Centre, where you will be introduced to the way of life of the Bininj people, traditional owners of this land. Join your local guide for a cruise on Yellow Water Billabong, home to thousands of saltwater crocodiles and up to 60 species of colourful birdlife, including sea eagles, brolgas and tiny brilliantly hued kingfishers. See estuarine crocodiles basking in the shallows and on the sandy banks. Enjoy lunch at Cooinda. Travel to the Nourlangie rock art site and take a walk with your driver guide around its base to see many different forms of Aboriginal rock art.
