Take part in the ultimate cultural safari with Intrepid Travel.

Learn ancient Aboriginal traditions with the Limilngan-Wulna People, fill up on bush tucker in Woolna Country, go croc-spotting on the Mary River Wetlands, and hike above the Nardab Floodplain. Then take the plunge at Barramundi Gorge, put the 4×4 through its paces at Jim Jim Falls, and experience the astonishing beauty of the Kakadu National Park.

 

Day 1 Darwin/ Mary River
Visit the Litchfield National Park and escape the heat beside cascading tropical waterfalls and in refreshing swimming holes. Head west and meet the Limilngan-Wulna People, traditional owners of the land. This is an immensely sacred area for their people so the welcoming ‘Cul Cul’ is a humbling greeting. Discover more of the day-to-day culture and traditions by indulging in some bush-tucker, mastering your didgeridoo technique or perhaps creating a hand-woven treasure to take home. Wind down the day with a cruise along the spectacular Mary River Wetlands, where the local crocodiles are often kind enough to join us.

Day 2 Mary River/ Kakadu

Hike through Ubirr and see ancient Aboriginal rock art that has survived almost 1500 years. Clamber up to a rocky lookout where the Nardab Floodplain, and aptly named East Alligator River, make for an astonishing view. This hike is rewarded with a splash in the plunge pools at Maguk (Barramundi Gorge) before retreating to camp for some campfire storytelling.

Day 3 Kakadu/ Darwin
Put the 4×4 through its paces on the way to Jim Jim Falls. Often raging; sometimes a mere trickle, the falls are an epic feature of the landscape. Hike to the base before continuing to Twin Falls, where the Kakadu National Park operates a boat and boardwalk adventure to explore the stunning gorge and surrounding falls. Enjoy the tranquillity of this scenic gem before the return to Darwin marks the end of this 4×4 Kakadu and Litchfield Safari.
