The Kakadu and Litchfield ‘Best in the wet’ experience rallies around the Top End Wet Season. It is the time to feel the power of nature and witness the bucket list shows of lightening and thunder. Not for the faint hearted the mission is to get you amongst it.
Witness waterfalls gone wild, swim in outback creeks, fly over moody escarpment country and immerse yourself in the oldest continuous culture on earth.
This is the ‘Best In The Wet’.
Day 1 Litchfield National Park
Today begins with pick up at your Darwin accommodation at 7 am and from there it is all about the landscape. Wangi Falls, Tolmer Falls, Tabletop Wetland, secluded swim spots and massive termite mounds !
Spend the morning and early afternoon exploring Litchfield Park before setting sail for Kakadu. Arriving in Kakadu at Cooinda resort you can settle in for the afternoon or join us for a sunset vigil at Nawurlanja Rock.
