  • Day 1: Darwin to Kakadu

    Welcome to the tropics - your Topdeck trip starts now. Two national parks in one day? Yep, it's a thing. Kick off your trip with a short drive down Stuart Highway into Litchfield National Park. Swimming under a tropical waterfall? This seems like just the day to do it. Next up: World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park. Swimming in salt water lakes is nice but check the waters first, or you'll have unwanted crocodile guests.<br /> <br /> *Wet season (Nov-May): Spend more time in Litchfield National Park then stay at Batchelor Motel in Litchfield tonight.<br /> <br /> Included today:<br /> -Litchfield National Park swimming locations<br /> -National Park entry<br /> <br /> Meals: Lunch, dinner.<br /> <br /> Did you know:<br /> -The Kakadu plum (found throughout the tropical woodlands from northwest Australia to east Arnhem Land) is ranked among the highest known of any natural source for its Vitamin C content, with 3150 mg/100 g compared to 50 mg/100 g. <br /> -Most of Kakadu&rsquo;s waterways are croc infested so don&rsquo;t test the waters.

  • Day 2: Kakadu

    At half the size of Switzerland, there's a lot of Kakadu to see. Get ready to rock early, because we're going deep into the park to check out some Aboriginal Rock Art sites and cruise the East Alligator River to see how many crocs we can snap (on our cameras). We've also got special permission to enter Arnhem Land for a lesson in traditional Aboriginal hunting methods and a cruise down the river. Lunch is your choice today. Climb to the top of Ubirr Rock Crocodile Dundee style and take in the fiery sunset. <br /> <br /> *Wet season (Nov-May): Today's stops visited on previous day and today's itinerary going straight to Litchfield National Park. Overnight: Batchelor Motel, Litchfield.<br /> <br /> Included today:<br /> -Aboriginal Rock art sites<br /> -Kakadu River Cruise<br /> -Arnhemland (seasonal)<br /> -National Park entry<br /> <br /> Meals: Breakfast.<br /> <br /> Did you know:<br /> -Most of Kakadu's waterways are croc infested so don't test the waters. <br /> -Don't harass Australian crocodiles. They might harass you back.

  • Day 3: Kakadu to Katherine

    The only thing more terrifying than the plastic clog variety are the crocs that can be found in Kakadu. Luckily, the areas we're heading to today are saltwater crocodile free. If this place looks familiar, you've probably seen Crocodile Dundee one too many times. Still too scared to swim? Take a scenic flight for a bird's eye view over the escarpment that marks the borderline of Arnhem Land. When you're done, take in a game of lawn bowls at the Country Club and enjoy a good ol' fashioned BBQ with the locals. <br /> <br /> *Wet season (Nov-May): Waterfalls replaced with other Kakadu site depending on road and weather conditions.<br /> <br /> Included today:<br /> -Gunlom Falls (seasonal)<br /> -Bowali Visitor Centre<br /> -National park entry<br /> -Lawn Bowls<br /> <br /> Meals: Breakfast, dinner.<br /> <br /> Did you know:<br /> -The world&rsquo;s longest fence runs for 5,618 kilometres from Queensland to Western Australia and was built to protect sheep from dingoes.<br /> -If the mercury drops below 20C in Australia, it&rsquo;s officially cold. Don&rsquo;t even think about arguing about this.<br /> -Don&rsquo;t harass Australian crocodiles. They might harass you back.

  • Day 4: Katherine

    You've got a front row seat for the amazing wildlife and scenery while canoeing along the Katherine River - the Gorge is yours to explore. But if you'd rather not be up the creek with a paddle, take your trip to the next level by upgrading to a three-gorge cruise and venture even further into the wilderness. We'll spend the afternoon absorbing the majestic Edith Falls - #nofilter necessary. <br /> <br /> *Wet season (Nov-May): Canoeing replaced with Katherine Gorge Boat Cruise.<br /> <br /> Included today:<br /> -Katherine Gorge Canoeing (Boat Cruise Wet Season)<br /> -Edith Falls<br /> <br /> Meals: Breakfast.

  • Day 5: Katherine to Tennant Creek

    Drift off in the steamy thermal springs of Mataranka in the heart of the Never Never. Never never thought you'd find this in the outback, hey? This trip is thirsty work, but you'll soon be able to re-hydrate with an ice-cold beer at one of Australia's best-known watering holes, the Daly Waters Pub. Located 'in the middle of somewhere', this place was the site of Australia's first international airport back when flights to London took eight days.
