Kakadu, Nourlangie and yellow water cruise
Depart the tropical city of Darwin and enter World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park. Covering some 20,000 square kilometres, Kakadu is Australia’s largest national park. Kakadu’s vast wetlands and ancient escarpment are home to one of Australia’s largest and most diverse bird populations, and carry outstanding natural and cultural significance. Visit Warradjan Aboriginal Culture Centre where the traditional Aboriginal land owners (Bininj) of Kakadu National Park tell stories of their culture through the displays and exhibitions. Afterwards, join a wonderful guided cruise on famous Yellow Water billabong. As you cruise, keep an eye out for wildlife that inhabits the billabong and its surrounds, including crocodiles. Then travel to Nourlangie Rock to view a variety of ancient Aboriginal rock art. The name ‘Nourlangie’ is an anglicised version of Nawurlandja. The most famous rock art picture at Nourlangie is called Namondjok and for some Aboriginal groups he is a Creation Ancestor who now lives in the sky and can be seen only at night, when he appears as a dark spot in the Milky Way galaxy. Afterwards, depart Nourlangie Rock and return to the city of Darwin, where your day’s touring draws to its conclusion.
