Discovering the secrets and exploring the Top End of Australia should be on everyone’s bucket list. The incredible landscapes, stunning waterholes and contrasting scenery really encapsulates what outback Australia is all about.
One of Trip in a Van's favourite road trips in the Northern Territory is the Nature’s Way loop , driving through to World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park and Nitmiluk National Park, before returning to Darwin via Litchfield National Park. A 735-kilometre scenic and adventurous journey into gorges, waterfalls and swimming holes – making the drive a budget-friendly and wondrous seven-day trip!
DAY 1 DARWIN - KAKADU NATIONAL PARK
Darwin has so much on offer, from the vibrant night life to free activities for kids, it's here where you can kick off your trip with a bang!
Begin your journey to the World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park; the 250-kilometre trip will have you exploring waterways, Aboriginal art, spotting crocodiles, waterhole swimming and hiking to mind-blowing lookouts. A place like no other – Kakadu is an iconic destination. I would recommend staying at Cooinda Campground and Caravan Park. It’s a great base to explore all the attractions in the area. There is plenty of shade, a pool and a relaxing bistro, children camp for free and depending on the time of the year, the cost of a powered site is from $20.
