What you can expect

There's no better way to immerse yourself in the wonders of the Top End than with a camping trip in the wilderness. Spend 3 days exploring the rugged landscapes of Kakadu and Litchfield national parks, see the wildlife in the Mary River Wetlands, and admire spectacular nights under the stars.

Day 1 Departing from Darwin from 6.00am, our Top End adventure begins as we travel to the Mary River Wetlands for our cruise. This region is home to over 250 bird species and has the highest concentration of saltwater crocodiles in the Southern Hemisphere. Search for the mighty crocs who rule this waterway, buffalo, birds and other wildlife.

Our entrance to Kakadu National Park is at the South Alligator River, a picturesque location for a picnic lunch. We arrive into Ubirr in the late afternoon; here you will view a wide range of ancient Aboriginal art which will be interpreted by your guide. Learn the story of the Rainbow Serpent and climb the Nadab Lookout for panoramic views over the floodplain and beyond into Arnhem Land.

As the day draws to a close we head to our private campsite for dinner and our overnight stay.

Day 2 This morning the jewels of Kakadu National Park await. After breakfast and departing camp we travel off road to the majestic Twin and Jim Jim Falls* for a day of adventure and exploration. Travelling into Twin Falls by 4x4 track, a boat shuttle and finally a rocky track and board walk we will be rewarded by the beauty of this remote waterfall deep within Kakadu National Park. Afterwards we stay off the beaten track where a walk through monsoon forests and over boulders lead us to Jim Jim Falls. Surrounded by 150 metre cliffs, we spend some time soaking up the natural beauty of this majestic location.

This afternoon we visit the Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre after which we depart Kakadu National Park and travel towards Litchfield National Park where we will stop along the way at our private campsite. Tonight, enjoy a hearty meal with your fellow adventurers.

Day 3 Explore the waterfalls, spring-fed streams, and rugged sandstone escarpments of Litchfield National Park. Marvel at the intriguing termite mounds and swim, hike, and explore the sights at Florence and Wangi Falls. After a look at the rock holes and cascading waterfalls of Buley Rockhole, head back to Darwin in the early evening as your tour comes to an end.
