3 Day Kakadu National Park Tour Itinerary

The Kakadu National Park is a breath-taking landscape filled with mesmerising waterfalls, ancient rock art, and sprawling plains, all of which you can discover on this three-day tour. We’ll take you to centuries-old art spots, refreshing plunge pools, and incredible lookout points as you learn more about this fascinating part of the country.

Day One (lunch)

We’ll kick things off by heading to the famous Australiana Bark Hut to enjoy a refreshing drink before arriving at the Kakadu National Park. Once there, we’ll break for a lunch at Anbangbang Billabong to take in the panoramic scenery towards Burrunguy (Nourlangie rock). After our meal, we’ll stroll through the galleries located at the base of Burrunguy, where you will hear stories about the rock art and the history of the area before hiking up to Gunwhardewharde lookout to admire the spectacular views all around.

Before evening arrives, we’ll head to our accommodation where you can relax or enjoy a swim in the pool before a magical sunset cruise on the Yellow Water Billabong. Relax aboard the small boat as the sunsets drifts towards the horizon and turns the sky and water pink, keeping an eye out for crocodiles and other local wildlife.

Day Two (breakfast & lunch)

The day will begin with a hearty breakfast before embarking on a stunning hike through Gunlom Falls. At the top of the falls you can go for a swim and soak up the breathtaking views from the natural infinity pool before breaking for lunch.

In the afternoon we make our way to the beautiful Maguk aka Barramundi Gorge. Enjoy the short walk through the paperbark forest to the swimming hole for a relaxing afternoon dip. Afterwards, we’ll enjoy a cultural encounter at the Warradjan Cultural Centre, where you can learn about the indigenous people of Kakadu.

The remainder of the evening will be spent at your accommodation in Jabiru.

Day Three 

Your final day will begin with a short drive to experience crocodile spotting on the banks of the East Alligator River. In the afternoon, we journey to Ubirr Rock to discover some of the ancient rock art that decorates many of the landmarks. Be astounded by the awesome views of Arnhem Land and the Nardab floodplain as you hear about the Indigenous culture inherent to the area.

After a memorable 3 days in Kakadu, we head back to Darwin. But don’t worry, the tour doesn’t end there! We’ll stop at Mamukala wetlands for bird watching and Humpty Doo Hotel for a drink before returning to the city.
