3-Day 4WD Small-Group Litchfield and Kakadu Camping Adventure
Departing Darwin at around 7am, enjoy the short 1.5-hour trip by air-conditioned 4WD to Litchfield National Park. Accompanied by your professional guide, explore Litchfield's beautiful sandstone escarpments and waterfalls. Enjoy swims in plunge pools at the Florence and Wangi waterfalls, and follow streams meandering along the base of towering sandstone cliffs. After lunch in Litchfield National Park, spot saltwater crocodiles, buffalos, waterbirds and other wildlife on your private two-hour cruise through the Mary River wetlands. You're bound to spot crocs, as Mary River has one of the highest concentrations of salties in the world. Next, enjoy a scenic drive by 4WD along the Marraki Road to your Mary River campsite. Enjoy a swim and dinner around the campfire before turning in for the night.
Overnight: camping accommodation at Mary River
Day 2: Litchfield National Park - Twin Falls Gorge -- Jim Jim Falls - Kakadu National Park (B, L, D)
Start the day early with breakfast at your campsite before traveling to Twin Falls Gorge by 4WD, boat shuttle, walking track and boardwalk. Rest on the gorge's sandy banks and admire the falls, before continuing to Jim Jim Falls by 4WD. Enjoy a walk through monsoon forest and a short climb over boulders to reach the falls, and take a refreshing swim in the picturesque plunge pool surrounded by sandstone cliffs. Spend the afternoon at this lovely Kakadu highlight, then relax on the return trip by 4WD to your Darwin accommodation. Tonight, you have the option to sleep out under the stars in a traditional swag -- the outback term for a bedroll, your swag contains a mattress, sheet and pillow for a comfortable night's sleep!
Overnight: camping accommodation at Cooinda
Day 3: Kakadu National Park – Darwin (B, L)
After breakfast at your campsite, take a short hike to Nawurlandja lookout and witness spectacular views of the escarpment country, Norulangie and Anbangbang Billabong. Next, enjoy the scenic drive to Ubirr in the East Alligator region of Kakadu National Park. Hear the Aboriginal Dreamtime story of the Rainbow Serpent, interpreted by your guide, as you admire the ancient rock art at Ubirr, a collection of rocky outcrops dotting the flat flood plain. See ancient impressions of turtles, possums and wallabies depicted on the rock walls, and admire the views over the surrounding flood plain into neighboring Arnhem Land. After lunch visit the Bowali visitor centre, see audio visual presentations and Marrawuddi gallery showcasing Aboriginal art by artists within the Kakadu region. This afternoon, relax as your guide returns you back to Darwin.

Fantastic tour, we had a bus full of young fun loving people and we had a ball. Mel was our driver/guide and she showed us all of the amazing waterfalls and swimming holes, she told us about the termite mounds and other features of the outback. The food was fresh and plentiful. Dinner the first night was a BBQ with steaks, sausages and salads with lots of wine. We never felt rushed and had plenty of time to explore the beautiful water holes and waterfalls. I would definitely recommend this tour but take the Aerogard, good walking shoes and sunblock. There is a lot of climbing up rocky hills at Litchfield.
