Fogg Dam / Kakadu
Fogg Dam and Kakadu An early morning start gets us out to greet the sunrise on the dynamic Adelaide River floodplains where we take the time to enjoy the wildlife that abounds. Fogg Dam Conservation area is the focus point.
On display here is a massive variety of birdlife, reptiles, mammals and more across wetlands, floodplains, woodlands and monsoonal forest. Fogg Dam is also a great place for breakfast !
Moving on from here our destiny takes us to Jabiru in the heart of World Heritage Kakadu National Park. Here we will enjoy a picnic lunch by the lake before visiting the Bowali centre for an introduction to the Kakadu environmental and indigenous landscape.
From Bowali we venture to the East Alligator River where we join the the Guluyambi Culture Cruise for 90 minutes of wildlife spotting, indigenous culture instructions and anecdotes from a local aboriginal guide.
Bear in mind to keep your hands in the boat as this river has one of the highest populations of saltWater crocodiles in the world.
For those that survive the cruise it is time for a privately guided art interpretation walk by a traditional owner around Ubirr rock art site which culminates with sunset nibbles and refreshments near Nadab lookout overlooking the Kakadu floodplains.
Kakadu Up again before the birds, a quick cuppa and we are off to Cooinda where we will join the sunrise Yellow Waters cruise. This is the perfect cruise to witness the wakening of wildlife on the wetlands backed up by expert local commentary.
Enjoy the full buffet breakfast at Cooinda resort after the cruise before we journey back towards Anbangbang Billabong and Nourlangie. Both Anbangbang and Nourlangie are rich in natural values but are also significant spiritual places for the local indigenous peoples.
We will have time for plenty of questions about indigenous culture during a walk through the art galleries and lunch by the Anbangbang Billabong.
Late afternoon sees you looking down from above on a 1 hour scenic flight along the majestic escarpment and stoney outliers. From this birds eye perspective you will get not only a final look at the breath taking physical features of the Kakadu landscape over which you have been navigating but also a sense of space and time that marks this as home of the original Australians.
