Day 1 (L)
We’ll pick you up at 8am from your Darwin accommodation for your 3 day 4WD tour to Kakadu.
Travelling along the Stuart and Arnhem highways, we enter the wetlands region and make our way to Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve. Beautiful Fogg Dam is home to a large variety of animals and birds, which makes it internationally significant.
At Pudakul Aboriginal cultural tours you'll take a 2 hour tour learning basket weaving, dilly bag making and learn about local bush food and medicine. Try spear throwing, blowing the didgeridoo and playing the clapsticks. Damper (bush bread) and tea will be served afterwards.
After lunch we drive to World Heritage listed Kakadu National park, which is Australia’s largest national park and home to some of the world’s finest rock art, around one third of Australia’s bird species and a variety of animals that live in the diverse range of habitats, including floodplains and savannah woodlands.
Our first stop in Kakadu is Ubirr, in the very north of the park. As well as the fantastic galleries of aboriginal rock art, which your guide will interpret, it also offers a spectacular view over the Nadab floodplain and the Arnhemland escarpment, from the lookout at the end of the walk.
After a look around the Bowali visitors centre, we make our way to our accommodation for the next 2 nights. Dinner can be purchased at one of the nearby restaurants.
