Kakadu National Park Overland Adventure Tours

Kakadu National Park Overland Adventure Tours

Kakadu is renowned for its rich Aboriginal history and biodiversity. You can experience towering red rugged escarpments, impressive gorges, floodplains, art galleries thousands of year’s old, pockets of rainforests, billabongs dotted with lotus flowers and lurking crocs, waterfalls cascading into plunge pools.

Yellow Water Cruise

The Yellow Water Cruise is a must experience in Kakadu. Recommend visiting on sunrise when the air is still and the weather pleasant. The Billabong is abundant with wildlife and sunrise is when you see it wake up. You will be surprised by how much you will learn about seeing and learning about all the bird life.

Gunlom Falls

There’s a steep walk up to Gunlom Falls from the car park, It’s well worth going up there as the sweeping views out to the valley are just spectacular, which can be appreciated straight from nature’s best infinity pool.

Jabiru

Jabiru is the main town within Kakadu National Park. This is a great place to camp to explore Ubirr and Nourlangie.

East Alligator River Area

The East Alligator river area takes you to the border of Kakadu and Arnhem Land.

Ubirr Rock Art

A guide will talk on Aboriginal rock art and culture relating to the Ubirr rock art gallery. An Aboriginal ranger will tell you many of the stories behind the paintings on the wall.

Nadarb Sunset

The rock art is impressive and worth spending time seeing. Go in the afternoon and then head straight up the top of the rock for one of the most beautiful sunsets you could hope to see over the Nadarb floodplains and Arnhem Land.

Nourlangie Rock Art

The art sites and Aboriginal shelter can be explored along a 1.5km loop walk. It also takes you to Gunwarrddehwardde Lookout with spectacular views of the escarpment.

Sunset at Nawurlandja Lookout

Another impressive sunset is at Nawurlandja. It’s a short 600-meter climb and gives views over Nourlangie, the escarpments of Arnhem Land, and the Anbangbang Billabong. The sunset is not as striking as Nadarb, as you are looking away from the setting sun, but just as serene and beautiful.

Jim Jim Falls

Jim Jim Falls is said to be one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Kakadu. It has a deep plunge pool and is surrounded by 150 meter high cliffs.

Koolpin Gorge

Access is seasonal and requires a permit and a high clearance 4WD. It’s real wilderness camping and hiking, but if you’re up for it, you’ll almost have the waterfalls and swimming holes to yourself.
