Departing Darwin at 7am, the first stop on your adventure is Ubirr Rock, one of the main cultural sites within the park. At Ubirr you can view a wide range of Aboriginal rock art which will be interpreted by your guide. Here you will learn about the Rainbow Serpent and climb the Nadab Lookout for excellent views over the surrounding floodplain and beyond into Arnhem Land. In the afternoon visit the Warradjan Cultural Centre to learn about the 40,000 years of aboriginal occupation within the park.  Tonight enjoy dinner and an overnight stay at either your private campsite or air-conditioned accommodation at Cooinda.

Up early to enjoy a crocodile cruise on the Yellow Waters billabong. A must do activity within Kakadu National Park, the award winning Yellow Waters cruise is Aboriginal owned and centres around a spectacular billabong system that is home to some remarkable and diverse wildlife. Spotting crocodiles is only one of the many wildlife viewing opportunities on this unique water system.   Later, enjoy a half day hike and swim at the beautiful Gubara Springs* and/or Gunlom Falls*, and walk to the top of the Nawurlandja lookout with spectacular views over Kakadu. Late afternoon you will drive to Mount Bundy, close by Litchfield National Park and spend tonight at your private permanent campsite with your fellow travellers, or in your lodge room nearby.

Day 4 - (Lunch /Dinner)

You will be collected from your Darwin accommodation at approximately 6.00 am when our adventure through the ‘Territory’ to Alice Springs begins. The afternoon is spent at Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) National Park which is owned by the Jawoyn Aboriginal people. Ancient sandstone has been carved away by the Katherine River to create a deep and picturesque gorge. You may like to take a boat cruise or paddle a canoe (seasonal) through the peaceful water (both optional and additional cost) before journeying to our nearby campsite.

Day 5 - (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)

A great start to the day, is a soak in the Mataranka Thermal Pools, a lush oasis fringed by paperbark trees. No trip to the ‘Territory’ is complete without a visit to the Daly Waters Pub, an important watering hole for explorers and drovers in days gone by and now a great spot for a cold beer, a bit of history and a ‘fair dinkum outback experience’! Your day winds to a close at historic Banka Cattle Station where you camp for the night.

Later in the day we cross the Tropic of Capricorn (only 20% of the Northern Territory lies south of this point) then a short time later, arrive into Alice Springs. Two night’s dorm or Budget ensuite Twin/Single accommodation in Alice Springs is included.

Those choosing to climb will have the opportunity to do so, weather permitting. (Note: Uluru is a sacred site and the Anangu people ask visitors to respect their law and do not climb it).  The Cultural Centre is impressive and well worth a visit before watching the ever changing colours of Uluru at sunset.

Pull on your hiking boots and take the Valley of the Winds walk through creek beds, domes and beautiful wilderness.
