Vacation Itinerary

Vacation Day 1 - Darwin
Meet up with your fellow travellers and crew before heading out to stunning Litchfield National Park. On the way, we stop by the termite mounds, a local natural curiosity. These mounds are up to 4 metres high and are literally magnetic – your Tour Manager will fill you in on the details.Then we hit the famous falls that make up the park - 4 waterfalls pour over a wide plateau into deep, picture-perfect waterholes surrounded by thick rainforest.

Vacation Day 2 - Darwin to Kakadu National Park
Today, we hit the Darwin Museum and find out about the unlucky past of the Northern Territory’s capital. Later, we travel to Australia’s largest national park, Kakadu, known for its ancient rock art, some of which is up to 20,000 years old. Hotel (B) (D)

It’s packed with swamps, rainforest, wetlands, woodlands, plants, insects and 75 different types of reptiles.Our included boat cruise takes us out onto Yellow Water, a lush inland lagoon. You’ll see some rock art, birdlife and even learn about the Aboriginal history of the area.We get the background on local indigenous culture at the Warradjan Cultural Centre before we explore the “rock galleries” of Ubirr, where time-old paintings line the cave walls.

Grab a bite to eat here and maybe meet a local character or two.We overnight in Tennant Creek, a “true blue” Aussie outback town, where you’ll get a feel for the size of Australia. In the middle of nowhere, this town is the only point of contact for the million acre cattle stations of the surrounding area. Hotel (B) (D)
