Your first stop is Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve, a vast open wetland area that is home to a large number of birds during the Top End dry season. Moving on, you cross the Marrakai Plains and the Adelaide and Mary Rivers before a morning tea stop at an outback pub and roadhouse, the Bark Hut Inn. The journey continues down the old Jim Jim 4WD dirt track into Kakadu National Park where you will have the opportunity to view birds and wildlife. After lunch, cruise on the famous Yellow Water Billabong, abundant with many species of birds and of course the mighty saltwater crocodile. Later there is an opportunity to visit the Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre before heading to your accommodation for the night at the Kakadu Crocodile Hotel in Jabiru. (L)

Day 2: First stop this morning is the Bowali Visitor Centre and Park Headquarters and Marrawuddi Gallery before heading to Nanguluwur rock art and occupation sites. These sites are less well known and well away from the crowds but have excellent examples of rock art. The art includes the rare and ancient dynamic figures, x-ray style art and the contact period art which represents the Aboriginal peoples first contact with white man. After lunch head south along the 4WD track to Maguk Gorge (Barramundie Gorge) and spend the afternoon in this picturesque area. At the end of a monsoonal forest walk you can enjoy a swim in the refreshing natural plunge pool below a beautiful perennial waterfall. Accommodation is at the Kakadu Crocodile Hotel in Jabiru.(B,L)

Day 3:Today your journey heads to Arnhem Land, via a crossing of the East Alligator River, the natural border to Arnhem Land. With special permission from the traditional owners, you will visit a small Aboriginal community and Art Centre. Here you will have the opportunity to meet Aboriginal artists and weavers and watch them at work and purchase genuine Aboriginal art and craft at wholesale prices. (Note  you are under no pressure to buy.) Later join an Aboriginal guided tour to a nearby ancient rock art site where some artwork dates back in excess of 20,000 years. You will receive expert interpretation of the art by your Aboriginal guide and enjoy excellent views overlooking the Arnhem Land wetlands. After lunch enjoy a relaxing drive back to Darwin via the Highway, viewing wetlands and billabongs along the way. Stop for a break at the Bark Hut Inn and arrive in Darwin late afternoon. (B,L)
