Day 1
Fogg Dam / Kakadu National Park tour

An early morning start gets us out to greet the sunrise on the dynamic Adelaide River floodplains.

On display here is a massive variety of birdlife, reptiles, mammals and more across wetlands, floodplains, woodlands and monsoonal forest.

Enjoy breakfast with the birds and coffee with the critters!

Moving on, our destiny takes us to Jabiru in the heart of World Heritage Kakadu National Park. Our first stop will be the Bowali centre for an introduction to the Kakadu environmental and indigenous landscape as well as a fresh picnic lunch.

After lunch it is time for a birds eye view of Kakadu from a light aircraft.  This is all about perspective.

From there we venture to the iconic East Alligator River and join the award winning Guluyambi Culture Cruise for 90 minutes of wildlife spotting, indigenous culture instructions and anecdotes from a local aboriginal guide.

Bare in mind to keep your hands in the boat as this river has one of the highest populations of estuarine crocodiles in the world.

For those that survive the cruise it is time for a stroll amongst the ancient rock art of Ubirr culminating with sunset nibbles and refreshments at Nadab lookout overlooking the eternal Kakadu floodplains.

Day 2

Kakadu National Park tour

Up before the birds, a quick cuppa and we are off to Cooinda where we join the world-renowned 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 spending some quality time in the comprehensive aboriginal culture centre, Warradjan.

Featuring stories, images, crafts, art and much more Warradjan is a place to go quietly and slowly.  Absorb the knowledge and then sit down with female elders and learn the craft of string making and weaving afterwards.

Following this we journey towards Anbangbang Billabong and Nourlangie. Both Anbangbang and Nourlangie are rich in natural values and are significant spiritual places for the local indigenous peoples.  For such an occasion and location, you will be privately guided through the halls of time by a local indigenous guide.

Ask those questions and ponder the answers.

With a late lunch following the walk by Nourlangie we are set for arrival back in Darwin around 7:30pm.

Colours of Kakadu - Kakadu 2 Day Tour

by Ashley Smith on Colours of Kakadu - Kakadu 2 Day Tour
Colours of Kakadu (2 Days)

In brief this was a 5 out of 5 star experience, which I would recommend to anyone who wants to experience the Kakadu in a culturally sensitive way.

The tour guide was punctual, polite, informative and all round "good bloke". Rob's passion for touring, the Kakadu and the co-existence of Indigenous cultures within Modern Australia is evident from the outset.

Our tour size was five, an intimate and personalised group. We were chaperoned by Rob in a well fitted-out mini-bus. Whilst there is a pre-determined schedule, Rob adjusts timings to suit the whims of those on the tour.

The food supplied and prepared by Rob, was plentiful and delicious, from the Croissants at dawn to the Steak, Salad and Garlic Bread at Lunch.

The light plane flight over the Kakadu, Warradjan Cultural Centre and the cruises on the East Alligator River and Yellow Waters were beyond memorable.

Highly recommended.

Kakadu 2 Day tour -Outstanding Trip

We joined the organized two day tour to Kakadu and Arnhem Land with Darwin based company ETHICAL ADVENTURES. It was a genuine small group tour with just five like minded people on our trip, plus the enigmatic Rob who runs EA (with his wife Trace) and takes the tours. The organization was excellent, with Rob thinking of every possible need and providing all the right breaks, snacks, meals and time just to enjoy the majesty and peace of Kakadu. Rob's great passion for the area and its people just made the trip so memorable. He has a extensive knowledge himself, but also had a couple of great indigenous guides who truly belong and relate to Kakadu and can convey that heritage so much better than reading about it in a book. We visited many wonderful places, such as Yellow Waters, the rock art at Mawurndaddja and enjoyed a plane flight to get an unprecedented areal view of the National Park. The accommodation at Anbinik was perfect for this visit, and we enjoyed an excellent meal with great company (and a good night's sleep). We are recommending this tour to all our friends.

Thanks Richard for your words of support and appreciation. It is a privilege to be able to take you and M to visit the Kakadu region and interact and learn from the indigenous people there and hear the stories and see the landscapes. Thank you for joining us and hope to see you again in teh future.

A wonderful and special adventure.

I was part of a small group of 5 and together with Rob, our friendly and passionate guide, had a wonderful intimate experience of the sights and sounds of Fogg Dam and Kakadu. We enjoyed great food, accommodation and activities. The excellent insights into culture from the different local indigenous guides provided a diverse perspective and a real connection with the land and the people that will forever stay with me.

Hi Jen. Thanks for the feedback and also your enthusiastic participation in the Kakadu 2 Day experience. We are glad that you appreciated the indigenous guides and options we have included. Be sure to get in touch with us if ever you need anything or any ideas for future learning around this. All the best, Rob
