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 relax in the pool of the resort or go for a birds eye view of Kakadu from a light aircraft (optional extra). 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.
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 5:30pm.
