Flying into Darwin we meet up with the touring party. Spending the night in Darwin city we go out for a welcome dinner.
(FB, RD, Motel) South through Berry Springs to The Territory Wildlife Park for the morning. Continuing to Litchfield National Park with lunch and a swim at Wangi Falls, before Tolmer Falls and the Magnetic Termite mounds. Through Batchelor we return to Darwin.
(FB, MD, Motel) From Humpty Doo we venture out on the Arnhem Highway to Fogg Dam to marvel at the thousands of water birds in the wetlands. At Adelaide River we take a cruise up the river to see the spectacular jumping crocodiles. Entering Kakadu National Park over the South Alligator River before reaching our Jabiru motel. Note: Jumping Croc Cruise and Park Entry included.
(FB, RD, Motel) Kakadu is a timeless place, recognised as a global treasure. World Heritage listed for both its environment and the living Aboriginal culture. The oldest rock art in the park is up to 20,000 years old some recent enough to show European ships. The park is home to around 280 bird and 2000 plant species. We visit Nourlangie art site and take the Yellow Waters Cruise. In the afternoon we leave the park and head to Katherine. Note: Boat Cruise included.
(CB, PL, CAD, Ensuite Cabin) Continuing deep into the Territory we hit the dirt roads before driving through the Limmen National Park to arrive at Lorella Springs Wilderness Park, a family owned one-million-acre untouched remote NT wilderness sanctuary.
(CAB, PL, CAD, Ensuite Cabin) Sitting between Rosie Creek and the Tawallah Range we explore the parks gorgeous waterholes and sandstone including the Southern Lost City. The western side of the Gulf has had a varied past since Europeans arrived, most being settled as stations and now much of it is becoming preserved and protected.
(CAB, PL, CAD, Ensuite Cabin) An early start down the west side of the gulf, through Borroloola and across a number of seasonal rivers to reach the Northern Territory Queensland border alongside Brach Creek before passing Old Westmoreland Homestead, built in 1882 on the 1,700km2 station. We spend the night at Hells Gate. Note: Limited ensuite rooms available.
(CAB, PD, Motel) Coming to Burketown at the base of the Gulf we cross Leichhardt Falls and stop at Burke and Wills most northern camp to arrive in Normanton. In the afternoon we head up to Karumba for a picnic dinner on the coast.
(CB, RD, Ensuite Cabin) Moving away from the Gulf through Croyden, the Gregory Ranges and Georgetown we divert off for the last time and head south to Forsayth.
(CB, PL, RD, Ensuite Cabin) We spend the day relaxing around Cobbold Gorge, a beautiful setting on the Robertson River. Including a cruise on the narrow gorge with 30m high walls. This is our last afternoon enjoying the QLD savannah country. Note: Gorge Cruise included.
(CAB, RD, Motel) Off the dirt roads for the last time and back to the Development Road we cross through the Great Dividing Range to reach Atherton. The last leg of the tour takes us down the steep windy roads of the mountains in the lush plantations and rainforest, such a contrast to the open Savannah of the rest of the tour.
(CB, RD, Motel) A late start before we spend the morning in Cairns enjoying the city harbour and foreshore, an optional visit to the new Cairns Aquarium showing off many of the remarkable species of the great barrier reef. We go out for our evening meal in town reminiscing on a great outback tour.
