What to Expect
Your tour begins with an early-morning pickup from your Darwin hotel and an around 2-hour drive to Kakadu aboard an air-conditioned bus. During the journey, listen as your guide tells you about Kakadu National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site spanning an incredible 20,000 square miles (32,180 square kilometers). Hear how the park is famous for both its natural wonders—including its large population of crocodiles and other wildlife—and its cultural heritage, with a long history of occupation by Aboriginal communities. On arrival, the first stop of the day is Nourlangie Rock, a dramatic sandstone monolith nicknamed the “desert museum” for its remarkably preserved examples of ancient Aboriginal rock art. Take a guided scenic walk around the rock, stopping to peek into ancient cave settlements, admire the artworks etched into the cliffside, and learn more about the park’s earliest inhabitants. After a break for a picnic lunch (included), hop aboard a boat for a cruise along the Yellow Water billabong. Take in the unique landscapes of Kakadu as you glide through its wetlands and mangrove swamps. Along the way, look out for native wildlife, most notably the saltwater crocodiles that can often be seen lazing along the banks. The final stop of the day is at the Warradjan Cultural Centre, where you’ll gain an even deeper understanding of Kakadu’s indigenous heritage and the importance of the native lands to the Aboriginal community. Return to the bus for the return journey to Darwin, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Sad to say the worst tour we have done.Tour guide gave confusing instructions, so over 50 people got off the bus at places not sure what to do. And then we were made to sit on the bus for 50 minutes waiting for people that took the scenic flight

Hi Christophor J, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. It is unfortunate to hear that you had a disappointing time on or Kakadu National Park tour. We understand that travelling to Kakadu is a big day and we try to create the itinerary so you can still view the amazing aspects of Kakadu within a reasonable timeframe. - unfortunately during your visit the Warradjan Cultural Centre was closed for refurbishment which resulted in more time at the Mercure Crocodile Hotel. We appreciate your feedback and will look at what we can do for future touring to make the most out of our Kakadu National Park Day Tour. Many thanks, The team at AAT Kings.
