Four Day Top End Highlights Tour
Immerse yourself in the heart of the top end to truly discover the beauty and history behind the world heritage listed Kakadu National Park, the tranquillity of Litchfield National Park and the wildlife wonders of the Mary River. Stay 3 nights on the doorstep of this amazing natural wonder and let your guides introduce you to the amazing highlights of the outback.
Starting out from Darwin your journey begins by travelling East along the Arnhem highway. Enjoy a pleasant stroll through the shade of mesmerising melaleucas and paperbarks at Fogg Dam herald for its prolific bird life will be two of the highlights for your first travelling day. A stop along the way at Window to the Wetlands will also open your eyes to many of the amazing wonders you’ll experience over the coming days. A Boat cruise on the Corroboree Billabong known for the highest density of Saltwater Crocodiles is another crowd-pleaser.
By late afternoon you will arrive at Mary River Wilderness Retreat which will be your base for the next 3 nights, unpack and make your bungalow a home away from home and have time to stroll the tropical gardens or have a relaxing dip in the pool. The retreat is also rich in fauna and flora with 3 kilometres of Mary River Frontage and irrigated rolling grass hills home to many wallabies and birds. The retreat boasts walking tracks, bike, buggy and boat hire, a restaurant and two swimming pools. Meet the hosts and enjoy happy hour before a sumptuous dinner.
Day Two is action-packed (longest day of the tour) and begins with a departure from Mary River at no later than 8:00am! Today is filled with the wonders of Kakadu's ancient rock art which some is believed to be as old as 20,000 years. The escarpment and rock walls that has been the murals for this art is as impressive as the art itself. The views from Ubirr Rock across the wetlands into Arnhem land will leave you spellbound.
Day Three and feel free to start the day as early or late as you like! You will enjoy a wonderful cultural experience, free time and the chance to indulge in some optional extras, walks, take a boat on your own or simply relax by the pool with a good book. There are scenic flights, helicopter rides and air boat trips that can all be pre booked for you to indulge.
The last Day is packed full of excitement with a day trip to Litchfield National Park. Plunge into cool rock pools and cascading falls, visit massive termite mounds and see spectacular waterfalls. A tranquil rainforest walk makes for wonderful photo opportunities and a stop over on the way back to Darwin to sample homemade ice cream at Berry Springs is also on the agenda.
Lovely property with beautiful gardens and some nice walking tracks along the Mary River. Enjoyed all the wildlife around the property. The fish & mango sauce meal in their restaurant was delicious. The cabins are very comfortable. Great value. Very relaxing and thoroughly enjoyed my stay.”TripAdvisor
This was our first campsite on our 5 week journey through NT and Northern Queensland. It was an excellent choice and one of only two I had pre booked from the UK. The site was wonderful, lots of grass still which at the end of the dry is very good. The shady trees were a bonus and great to sit under when not out and about. Now as for the staff, what can I say - so very helpful. Bron was extremely helpful and came up with some great ideas of activities for the next day. The first evening we went on the camp's own river cruise, small boat and only 6 of us so very personal and great information. The next morning we set out with Bron's maps and drove around the Wildman Track. It was wonderful and got us back into the hang of the four wheel driving. We had a great lunch out at a tiny billabong with lots of birds. Late that afternoon we went, again at Bron's suggestion, on the Corroboree Wetlands Cruise which I would thoroughly recommend! The camp kitchen was well equipped and the showers, toilets and laundry rooms all worked fine. I would definitely stay here again and it makes a brilliant stop between Darwin and Jabiru.”TripAdvisor
We loved this! It was like being sent to stay with your lovely auntie in Australia, comfortable room that felt really far away from everyone else even though it wasn't, excellent onsite walks and a really enjoyable river cruise. Our room was quite far down the lawn which I liked, the food was good and hosts really friendly and knowledgeable about their area.”TripAdvisor
