Our Kakadu day tour gets an early start, departing the Lodge to travel along the Arnhem Highway to the world famous Kakadu National Park.
We have a rest stop by the South Alligator River and then continue past lush floodplains and billabongs reaching Ubirr Rock - one of the truly breathtaking sites of this World Heritage National Park. Ubirr Rock is famous for its rock art sites. There are three main galleries of art accessible to visitors. From the top there is a panoramic view of the surrounding floodplains and escarpments.
Enjoy a tasty picnic lunch where you will enjoy stunning views and a fascinating ecosystem. The return journey to Wildman later in the afternoon. Lunch destinations change regularly, depending on the time of year and can include Cahills Crossing or Bardadjidjli Walk. Please check with reception closer to the date.
Kakadu is an expansive World Heritage area and a long drive is required to see the best of it. Extended periods of time in a vehicle can be expected. There are plenty of stops to stretch the legs but please do not choose this tour if you cannot endure motor vehicle travel of up to 6 hours in total. Please wear comfortable walking shoes, a hat and sunscreen.
** March and April Kakadu Tours will go to Nourlangie and not Ubirr or Cahills Crossing as roads are restricted at this time of year. Nourlangie is an equally amazing destination with an abundance of rock art and stories to explore. Walk along the trails to Gunwarddehwardde Lookout where you can observe the impressive Arnhem Land escarpment with its sandstone cliffs and expansive savanna woodlands.
