The Experience — Discover ancient Aboriginal history, vibrant Indigenous culture and majestic landscapes

From ancient canyon’s thousands of years in the making and traditional rock art that has stood the test of time, Australia’s Top End is a discovery of storied history and culture. Your journey takes you from Australia’s only tropical city, Darwin, past new and old architectural marvels, such as the Old Government House built in the 1870s post white settlement and the elegantly box-like Northern Territory Parliament Building, to Mindil Beach’s cluster of colourful markets along the shoreline.

Experience Litchfield National Park’s crystal clear waterholes underneath Florence and Wangi Falls, marvel at majestic termite mounds and discover Katherine, the home of the stunning Nitmiluk National Park and meeting place of the traditional Jawoyn, Dagoman and Wardaman Indigenous peoples.

Explore the soaring rock faces and towering sandstone walls of Katherine Gorge, as you cruise past ancient Aboriginal rock paintings depicting Jawoyn Dream Time stories and majestic wildlife. Gain insight into traditional Indigenous bush tucker, medicine and the didgeridoo with a local Aboriginal guide who will educate you in the hunter-gatherer ways of the Aboriginal people.

Plunge into the waterholes of the magnificent Edith Falls, pass through Pine Creek, whose buildings date back to the heady gold rush days, and connect with the oldest living culture on Earth as you venture deep into the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park, home to 20,000-year-old rock paintings, tumbling waterfalls and ancient escarpment country. Let the sights and sounds of the Yellow Water Billabong dazzle you as you cruise through ancient waterways, where you could spot saltwater crocodiles, buffalos on the floodplains and sea eagles.

Marvel at the ancient Aboriginal rock paintings of Nourlangie, regarded as one of the premier rock art sites in Kakadu, and visit Ubirr, an Aboriginal rock art site dating back some 20,000 years where you can see fascinating examples of traditional x-ray art, early contact with white settlers and magnificent views over the flood plains from the summit.

Round out your Top End discovery at Fogg Dam Conservation, a bird-watchers' paradise home to a ludicrous number of waterbirds and platforms from which to enjoy the view.
