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’s waterways are croc infested so don’t test the waters.
