Afternoon Jumping Crocodile Cruise

Afternoon Jumping Crocodile Cruise

Jump to it and see the crocs

Just 50 miles from Darwin lies the Adelaide River, the location of the famous jumping crocodiles. And on this exciting trip you get to cruise the river and watch as these awesome creatures launch themselves out of the water. Your local guide will entice the crocodiles to 'perform' and you'll be able to see them at a close but safe distance.

You will be driven from your hotel to see the jumping crocs and after the cruise you continue to the Window on the Wetlands Visitors Centre for views over the Marrakai Plains and then on to Fogg Dam Nature Reserve - a fantastic little wetland area with the opportunity to see lots of native wildlife before returning to Darwin. This fun afternoon trip is great for all the family.

Safari for culture vultures

You are picked up from your hotel in Darwin to begin this full day Litchfield and Culture Safari.

Then drive into Litchfield National Park to view the Magnetic and Cathedral Termite mounds, an amazing architectural feat containing arches, tunnels and chimneys. They are plentiful in this region and can stand as high as 18 feet. In the park you discover waterfalls, spring-fed streams and the rugged sandstone escarpments. Lunch is included and later you can swim, hike and explore rock holes and waterfalls.

Kakadu National Park Explorer

Wonders of the national park

Begin this full day tour to Kakadu National Park by leaving Darwin and travelling east into World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park, with a breakfast stop enroute. Kakadu is Australia's largest national park and its vast wetlands and ancient escarpment are home to one of the country's largest and most diverse bird populations. This region has outstanding natural and cultural significance.

Visit rock art sites at Nourlangie Rock where the most famous picture is called Namondjok. For some Aboriginal groups he is a Creation Ancestor who now lives in the sky and can be seen only at night, when he appears as a dark spot in the Milky Way galaxy. Enjoy lunch at Cooinda before boarding the Yellow Water billabong cruise to view the myriad of birdlife and keep an eye out for crocodiles.

Katherine Gorge Cruise & Edith Falls

Cruise the scenic gorge

Leave Darwin and your first stop is at the Adelaide River War Cemetery, a site dedicated to those killed in the air raids in Darwin in the 1940s. After another stop for breakfast continue to Edith Falls for a refreshing swim in the paperbark and pandanas fringed waterhole beneath the falls. Then drive on to Katherine for lunch before beginning a two hour scenic cruise through Katherine Gorge in Nitmiluk National Park.

Here you cruise between the sheer sandstone cliffs of the gorge keeping an eye out for crocodiles and the splendid array of birdlife while enjoying lunch on board. The cruise of the first two gorges takes you past sheer rock walls and it requires a short walk to reach the second gorge. After the cruise there's a brief tour of Katherine before returning to Darwin via Pine Creek, an historic gold mining town.
