ACCOMMODATION

MEALS

Day 1

(RD, Motel) Fly to Darwin where we settle into our central motel and start to acclimatise to the Northern Wet Season.

Day 2

(FB, RD, Motel) A interesting day around Darwin City. With visits to the;

  • Museum & Art Gallery of Northern Territory, Set in a scenic location overlooking the Arafura Sea, MAGNT is home to internationally renowned artistic, cultural and scientific collections and research programs. The Museum also details one of Darwin’s most memorable nights, Christmas Eve 1974 visit from Cyclone Tracey.
  • Darwin Military Museum Tells the story of an extraordinary chapter in Australian History, the bombing of Darwin by the Japanese on the 19th February 1942.

After lunch in Darwin we take a lighter tone with a visit to the Botanical Gardens Plant Display House with tropical orchids, bromeliads and other exotic flora. Tonight we enjoy a buffet dinner at the Sky City Darwin Casino on the waterfront of Mindil Beach. Note: Both Museum entries included.

Day 3

(FB, Motel) Today is all about getting up in the air and viewing the giant rivers snaking through the landscape. We board a scenic flight out of Darwin to the east over Kakadu National Park. At this time of year the waterfalls are spectacular and the waterways are awash with bird and marine life. Returning to Darwin we have a free afternoon and evening in town visiting the
number of attractions, galleries, restaurants and bars. Note: Scenic Flight included.

Day 4

(FB, PL, RD, Motel) Now it is time to see it from the road. We drive down the Stuart Highway and head out on the Arnhem Highway. After crossing the Adelaide and Mary Rivers it’s into Kakadu National Park. We take a cultural cruise along the swollen Magela Creek – floating over crystal waters, through flooded paperbark forests. This cruise is the only way to get to Ubirr once floodwaters close the road. It’s utterly serene, and a rare chance to enjoy Ubirr’s world famous rock art galleries with barely any other visitors. On dry land again we visit the Bowali Visitor Centre before heading back towards Darwin with a stop along the way to enjoy barramundi and chips dinner. Note: Park entry and cruise included.

Day 5

(FB, RD, Motel) This morning we head down to the newly re-developed Darwin port area. With optional visits to the RFDS and Bombing of Darwin Centre or the WWII Oil Storage Tunnels. Otherwise relax and enjoy this new hub of Darwin. In the afternoon we visit the last of our city attractions at the Aviation Museum, a massive hanger on the edge of Darwin Airport housing a huge display including a B52 and F11 Strike fighter. We enjoy dinner tonight at the Darwin Sailing Club. Note: Aviation Museum entry included.

Day 6

(FB, PL, RD, Motel) Back on the road to Litchfield to experience the power of Wangi and Florence Falls. Some of the water holes here are closed for swimming at this time of year due to the unknown movements of crocs in the swollen system. After inspecting the intriguing Magnetic Termite Mounds we return to Darwin via Batchelor.

Day 7

(FB) After absorbing all the amazing summer has in Darwin and the Top End we return home.

Note: Some modifications may need to be made due to weather conditions.

Notes

The wet season in Darwin is characterised by high humidity, monsoonal rains and storms. Average temperatures range from 25 – 32°C, and humidity can push past 80 per cent. The average annual rainfall is 1727mm and about a quarter of this is expected in Feb/Mar. Because of this the wet is considered by many as the most beautiful time of year in the Top End, Sunny days and afternoon storms refresh the landscape, animals and plants flourish.

The Ghan

We have partnered with Great Southern Rail to offer Darwin to Adelaide Ghan journey after this tour. On day 7 instead of flying out you will board the Ghan in Darwin and enjoy a two night journey down to Adelaide in a Gold Service Cabin. In Adelaide there will be one more nights accommodation before flying home. Please contact us for further information, including costs.
