6 Days/5 Nights Top End Discovery Self Drive
After collecting the vehicle and driving east out of Darwin turn left on to the Arnhem Highway and head for the Kakadu National Park. Suggest a stop at Window on the Wetlands Visitor Centre, and then perhaps Adelaide River for an optional Jumping Crocodile cruise. The scenery on the way is dramatic and colourful with bird life, wet lands and high escarpments. A visit to the Bowali Visitor Centre is a must to learn more about this unique environment.
You have a full day at leisure to explore Kakadu. This morning take the 2 hour Yellow Waters Cruises from Cooinda. After your cruise call into the Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Other sights to see today include a visit to Nourlangie Rock and Ubirr Rock, or an optional scenic flight. Aboriginal rock art in this area is very well preserved and accessible. It's worth taking a guided tour to have the history of the rock art explained to you.
Leave Kakadu and head south on the Kakadu Highway towards Pine Creek. At Pine Creek you rejoin the Stuart Highway and travel on south to Katherine, making a leisurely stop at the beautiful Edith Falls. The Katherine Gorge is located 30 km from the town centre; here the river flows between towering walls of colour.
DAY 4: KATHERINE - 1 Night
This morning take the included 2 hour gorge cruise. Katherine Gorge is a system of 13 gorges all joining by rapids. The best way to see the Gorge is from the water, there are also scenic flights and plenty of marked walking tracks. This afternoon suggest a visit Mataranka, which is 106 km from Katherine. Mataranka is situated in Elsey National Park and here the Mataranka Thermal Pool is found. This is a very popular swimming spot - the thermal pool is around a constant temperature of 34 degrees Celsius
This morning drive north on the Stuart Highway and turn left onto the Batchelor Road. Litchfield National Park is the Top End's most accessible natural attraction and offers safe swimming and spectacular waterfalls all year round. The main attractions in Litchfield National Park including Buley Rockhole, Wangi, Tolmer and Florence Falls are all linked by quality sealed roads. There is swimming in specified areas, photography, wildlife observation and bushwalks ranging from a 20 minute stroll to extended walks. Your overnight stay is outside Litchfield at the beautifully scenic Lake Bennett. (Approximate distance for today includes touring through Litchfield National Park).
Enjoy more time this morning in Litchfield National Park or relax at Lake Bennett before returning to Darwin via the Stuart Highway. Your car is booked until tomorrow and should be dropped off at the city or airport, by the same time as it was picked up on Day 1, to avoid any additional charges.
