Kakadu & Mary River Adventure
$209concession ? Prices above are for departures between 1 April 2017 - 31 March 2018
Journey into the World Heritage listed Kakadu National Park and you‘ll be surrounded by vast tracks of savannah woodland, bordered by the largest wetland system in Australia. Pass through a variety of ecosystems such as monsoonal rainforest, sandstone country and the world’s most protected river the system the South Alligator River.
In the cool of the mid-morning you’ll arrive at Kakadu’s premier art site, Ubirr. The walk takes you into numerous galleries of rock art and shelters, which were used as recently as 40 years ago by the traditional people of Kakadu. The hundreds of paintings and views across the floodplains and sandstone country into Arnhem Land are breathtaking.
Bowali Visitor Centre
After lunch you’ll visit the park headquarters, Bowali, where there’s free time to explore the numerous interactive displays, research library, theatres, art gallery and gift shop.
Included Meals: Lunch
Mary River Wetlands cruise
Later, join a cruise on a wetland system that houses the world’s highest concentration of crocodiles. You’ll cruise east to west through the Mary River Wetlands. The abundance of food which sustains the large crocodile population also feeds a myriad of bird species, wallabies and water buffalo. The aquatic and land-based food chain found throughout the billabong system is something that has to be seen to be believed.
Finish your cruise parked amongst a stand of sacred lotus lilies with a glass of sparkling wine and a fresh tropical fruit platter to complement the majestic surrounds of these internationally significant wetlands.
Included Meals: Sparkling wine & fresh tropical fruit
