Kakadu National Park Explorer – D4
Turning off the Stuart Highway, we travel along the Arnhem Highway passing the major river systems and wetland regions into Kakadu National Park. Located 257 kilometres east of Darwin, this national park covers 20,000 square kilometres of landscape varying from rocky escarpment that is home to historic Aboriginal rock art dating back thousands of years, to the floodplains that are abundant with wildlife. After crossing the South Alligator River we head along the Kakadu Highway to Warradjan Cultural Centre to view its informative displays then continue to Cooinda to join the fabled Yellow Water Wetlands Cruise to experience the beauty of the Kakadu wetlands. After a buffet lunch at Cooinda we head off to explore the World Heritage Area of Ubirr where we climb up through the ancient Aboriginal rock art galleries, with informative commentary from our guide, to the lookout for the view over surrounding wetlands. Late afternoon we make our way out of Kakadu National Park, pausing for a comfort stop at the Corroboree Park Tavern before arriving in Darwin at approximately 8.00pm.
