Tropical Darwin is the gateway to the very best of the Top End. First is the Kakadu World Heritage area with stunning vistas, unique landforms, abundant wildlife and some of the best Aboriginal rock art in Australia. You will enjoy a cultural cruise on the East Alligator River where the waters are full of crocodiles and tropical water birds abound.
Heading south to the mighty Katherine Gorge, Auswalks lead to remote swimming holes and along the rim of Katherine Gorge itself and include some of the Jatbula Trail.
One of their favourite walks is to the lovely Mataranka Falls where two rivers meet in a magical watery wonderland. At Bitter Springs thermal pool, you can float down the crystal clear creek.
The finale is stunning Litchfield National Park where you visit huge waterfalls that plummet down the impressive escarpment. You'll hike a section of the Tabletop Track, see massive termite mounds and the chance of swimming or soaking your feet in the many waterholes en route.
