Experience the natural wonders and ancient cultural heritage of Kakadu — Australia’s largest national park. On this full-day tour from Darwin, cruise along the Yellow Water billabong while spotting crocs basking on the banks. Admire ancient Aboriginal art at the ‘desert museum’ of Nourlangie Rock, and delve deeper into indigenous history at the Warradjan Aboriginal Centre.
  • See Nourlangie Rock - the museum in the desert
  • Take a cruise on the Yellow River
  • See crocodiles basking in the sun
  • Enjoy lunch under the trees
  • Visit Warradjan Aboriginal Centre and learn the history of the area
Covering nearly 20,000 square miles (32,180 square km) of rivers, wetlands and ancient sandstone mesas, the Northern Territory’s Kakadu National Park is the largest park in Australia. Your full-day wilderness adventure begins with early morning pickup at your Darwin hotel and an approximately 2-hour drive to the park.

When you arrive, visit the remarkable collection of ancient Aboriginal rock art in the desert at Nourlangie Rock. Take a journey thousands of years back in time as you see stories of daily life depicted through well-preserved cave paintings. Break for a picnic lunch surrounded by the park’s dramatic scenery. 

In the afternoon, glide along the Yellow Water billabong on a river cruise. Learn about the natural history of the wetlands from your guide as you look for wild birdlife and crocodiles poking above the water’s calm surface. 

Finally, delve deeper into the area’s indigenous history with a visit to the Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre. At the end of your adventure, relax and soak up the scenery on the return drive to Darwin, where your tour concludes with hotel drop-off in the evening.

Interesting adventure
, Dec 2019
Very comfortable and for a reasonable price.. Excellent Driver/Guide Ben was so passionate and knowledgeable. I recommend the optional airplane flight over Kakadu. Tour boat operator/guide at Yellow Waters was superb!
A long but good day

This was a long day but if you don't have much time then it is worth it. The highlight was the cruise. I got to see a few crocodiles and plenty of bird life. The rock paintings were good too.
Don’t like it

To long Bustour, only small time in the park, nice trip on the water, the driver told to much. And for that it was to expensive. Better go alone and for some days. Never again.
Australia at its best

This trip had everything we were looking for. Rock paintings, Birds and the whole Kakadu experience. The explanations about the Rock paintings were full and interesting. Thee climb up was a bit steep and the stairs seemed never ending but it was well worth it. The Yellow Water cruise was great and although there was not a great number of species the sightings of what was there were great. Easy to see in open areas. A big buzz was an osprey at arms distance and Jabiru out in the open. Plumes Whistling ducks were in huge numbers. There were god croc sightings too and the boat went in close and from both sides. Lunch was adequate but we had to wait a while for bread rolls to come. The afternoon drive to the Crocodile Hotel was interesting but it was quite a let down from the morning. Worth the trip though.
Think twice before you book it

I read reviews before booking it and there were some poor ones. I ignored them. Don't do that. The pick up was fine. The group was huge. The driver was talking the whole day from Darwin to Kakadu (4h non stopp). You were not aloud to go to a lookout in Nourlangie. Athough there was time. The driver was not very nice. He said we should be back on the bus by 13 o'clock and at 12.55 he was already angry and told us we were late. I told him, we have still 5min left. He told me he does not care... The yellow water cruise was nice. In conclusion don't go there for one day. It is a long drive and there is not a lot to do and see. Go with another company and do more stuff.
Disorganised and Disinterested

Tour started off bad as company overbooked, spent a couple hours figuring out who to remove due to bus capacity exceeded, and all figured out while bus was full/ready-to-go. We essentially went 7 hours without seeing anything listed in the tour (6am to 1pm). Our tour guide was boring and disinterested; he even yelled at a few tourists during the day for no real good reason. The crocodile tour in the afternoon was awesome, which our guide dropped us off with another company to do. Due to company's disorganisation and overbooking in the morning delaying us a couple hours, we did not arrive back into Darwin until 9:30pm - too late to go to the Sunset Markets, etc as we had planned when we booked the trip (told we would be back between 6 and 7). Dinner was skipped by tour in lieu of a convenient store that had only snacks (nothing hot - just chips, candy, etc). Lunch was just cold meats and salad. Viator price doesn't include $40/person national park entrance fees, which was confusing given we were never saw a Park Ranger or Entrance. Why doesn't Tour Company include "National Park Fee" in our Viator tour that already costs quite a bit? Price definitely wasn't worth it and the day felt miserable. Unfortunately not recommendable.
