The NT Is Open For Business…

With the wet season dwindling the Northern Territory is coming into its own. Temperatures cool off between April and September meaning now is a great time to start planning Northern Territory tours.

For those looking to get stuck into the dense NT bushland a trip to Litchfield and Kakadu National Park should satisfy your inner Bear Grylls.

NT tour company, Kakadu Wild have just the trip for those who think they can survive three days in the bush. Although, when we say “survive” we kind allude to their luxury campsites with all the mod cons including proper bathrooms and showers. Sound like your version of camping? Read on…

During their 3 Day Kakadu & Litchfield Adventure you’ll have the chance to learn aboriginal traditions from the Limilngan Wulna tribe, cruise the Mary River Wetlands and spot the crocodiles, and venture to Ubirr to enjoy the rock art on display.

This exciting trip can only get better by experiencing it through 4WD safari. Kakadu is the very best place to seek rich landscape, interesting culture, and unique history.

Departing from Darwin, you’ll first explore the cascading waterfalls, swimming holes and towering termite mounds of Litchfield National Park – visiting Florence Falls and the Buley Rockholes before travelling onward to Wangi Falls for a final swim and a stroll through monsoon forest. An action-packed day you’ll next visit the Mary River National Park where you’ll spot enormous saltwater crocs.

Next up is the World Heritage Listed, Kakadu National Park. Described by UNESCO as a ‘living cultural landscape with exceptional natural and cultural values’. Indigenous people have lived here for more than 50,000 years, to which the ancient rock paintings of Ubirr can attest.

Your guide will explain the significance of these artworks during an interpretive cultural walk that finishes on a rocky escarpment overlooking the Nardab floodplain. From here it’s on to Maguk where you’ll be able to partake in a little more swimming in the crystal clear waterholes.

As Kakadu actually covers about the same area as Slovenia, it’s a good call to take an optional scenic flight over the area to take in its vast beauty. Although if sky’s the limit for you then don’t fret as you’ll get to learn a little more about this incredible National Park at the Bowali visitors centre before making your way back to Darwin where the tour concludes.
