Australia’s Northern Territory offers an outback experience like no other.


There’s plenty of Australian history to discover in Darwin, but this 3 day visit to the surrounding wilderness takes you to see the real Northern Territory.

Hop the famous Jumping Crocodile Cruise to see one of the world’s most fearsome and ancient predators in flight. Visit the Bowali Visitor Centre and perhaps take a flight over Kakadu National Park. Kakadu is a true natural and cultural wonder, where you’ll see Aboriginal rock art and a wealth of bird species. In the afternoon, you’ll reach Katherine, a historic town ‘where the outback meets the tropics.’ Cruise through Katherine Gorge to Edith Falls, a breathtaking (and crocodile-free) swimming spot before returning to Darwin.

Stop at Nourlangie, where your Driver Guide will lead you on a walk to view the rock art galleries. After lunch, join your local guide on a cruise of Yellow Water Billabong. Search for saltwater crocodiles and the colourful range of birdlife for which this region is renowned.
