Travel deep into Kakadu for a cruise on the famous Yellow Water Billabong. You should see a stunning variety of birdlife such as sea eagles, brolgas and with any luck, fascinating little kingfishers. You’ll also see feared estuarine crocodiles basking in the muddy shallows. We also visit Noarilangie and view Aboriginal rock art dating back some 20,000 years.

Day 4

The Tiwi Islands are a must-do and today we take the ferry across to Wurrumiyanga. We are greeted by the local people and our cultural experience begins. From the ferry landing, you’ll wander up to the Tiwi Design art centre for a traditional ‘Welcome to Country’ smoking ceremony including totem dances. After a short morning tea break your local Tiwi guide will then show you through the Patakijiyali Museum where you will learn about the culture and history of the Tiwi People.  Time to explore. (B,D)

Day 5

Litchfield National Park is a must see if you’re in the Top End. It’s home to several stunning waterfalls that cascade into crystal clear pools, iconic magnetic termite mounds and clusters of weathered sandstone pillars at the Lost City. Feel yourself unwind as you float in lush waterholes with misty waterfalls nestled among dramatic landscapes. This afternoon we travel to Adelaide River for a cruise to watch the famous jumping Crocodiles, and tonight we enjoy a sunset dinner cruise on Darwin harbour. (B,D)
