Overview:

Travel in the comfort of a luxurious fully equipped airconditioned 4WD vehicle with a maximum of just 6 passengers. Note: There may be other guests on the Arnhem Land section of this itinerary. We pick you up from your accommodation in Darwin, travel by road to Kakadu National Park, then fly by light aircraft to Arnhem Land and back to Darwin.

Day 1: Depart Darwin accommodation at around 8am. Our first stop is Fogg Dam, a vast open wetland area that is home to large numbers of birds during our Top End dry season. Moving on we cross the Marrakai plains, the Adelaide and Mary Rivers before our morning tea stop at the Bark Hut Outback Pub. We then turn off the highway down the old Jim Jim 4WD dirt track into Kakadu with the opportunity for viewing bird and wildlife at waterholes along the way. After lunch we join a cruise on the famous Yellow Waters billabong, abundant with many species of birds and of course the mighty salt water crocodile. Later visit Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Tonight our accommodation is at the Gagudju Crocodile Hotel in Jabiru.

Day 2: After breakfast we head to Nanguluwur rock art and occupation sites. This site is less well known and well away from the crowds but has some excellent examples of rock art, including the rare and ancient dynamic figures. There are also the famous x-ray style art and so called contact period art when Aboriginal people had first contact with white man. Your guide will explain the art and culture of the area. After lunch we head south along the 4WD track to Maguk (Barramundie Gorge) 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. Tonight our accommodation is at the Gagudju Crocodile Hotel in Jabiru.

Day 3: Early morning join your light aircraft at Jabiru airstrip for a 30 minute scenic flight into a private bush airstrip in remote Western Arnhem Land at Mt Borradaile. Met by your bush guide and with the special permission of the traditional owners you travel in an open air African style 4WD to one of the many ancient Aboriginal rock art sites. The art is colourful and prolific, from a culture dating back more than 60,000 years and regarded as some of the oldest and finest to be found anywhere in the world. Recorded on rock walls and inside caves which were once occupation sites and situated in an area very sensitive to local Aboriginal folklore, these art sites are a fascinating insight into one of the worlds oldest cultures. Remote with spectacular scenery, pristine wetlands, billabongs, birdlife and wildlife. Learn about traditional foods and medicine. Depart by light aircraft late afternoon to Darwin. Eta 5.30pm.
