1 Day Kakadu Tour from Darwin Itinerary

For an unforgettable adventure exploring Australia’s famous Kakadu National Park, join our one day tour from Darwin! You’ll observe an abundance of wildlife, admire ancient rock art and spend the day surrounded by the stunning landscapes of the Top End.

We start our day heading out of Darwin towards the Adelaide River, where you have the option to join the Jumping Crocodile Cruise (own expense) or explore Fogg Dam Conservation Centre. To watch some of Australia’s most dangerous animals in action in their natural habitat, climb aboard the Jumping Crocodile Cruise. On this hour-long cruise, you’ll learn all about Australia’s saltwater crocodiles and their habitat and be astounded by their strength as they leap from the water for a tasty bite of buffalo meat. Alternatively, wander the boardwalks and take in the views over the wetlands at the Fogg Dam Conservation Centre, keeping an eye out for the numerous species of birds and animals that call the area home.

Next up, we enter Kakadu National Park and make a stop at Bowali Visitor Centre and Murrawuddi Gallery to learn about the ecology and history of the area. Through videos and displays, the visitor centre offers fascinating insight from an indigenous perspective on their connection to the land and their care to manage the environment.

We journey deeper into Kakadu to view Cahills Crossing, an infamous and dangerous river crossing that has claimed many vehicles that unwisely tried to pass at the wrong time. Keep an eye out for more salties and the remains of overturned cars that failed to make it across.

Our final stop is Ubirr Rock, where you can admire some of Australia’s best examples of Aboriginal Rock Art. Once an important camping spot for Aborigines, the smooth rock surfaces make a perfect canvas for the depictions of food animals, Rainbow Serpent and more. Wander through the gallery before walking up to the lookout for spectacular views over the Nadab Floodplains. Soak up one last look out over this amazing landscape before we jump back on the bus and journey back to Darwin.
