Visit Kakadu's ancient rock art galleries and enjoy bushwalking in unspoiled country, swim in clear waters at the base of towering red ochre escarpment cliffs, cruise on a tranquil billabong full of saltwater crocodiles, and perhaps visit Arnhem Land to view Aboriginal rock art galleries, with an Aboriginal Guide on hand to provide explanation and interpretation.
A Kakadu Helicopter Safari is one of the world’s most amazing experiences. Imagine skimming over vast wetlands, landing on isolated beaches miles from anywhere, or swimming in clear fresh water pools fed by waterfalls since time immemorial.
The large landlocked billabong Yellow Water gained its name from the algal bloom found floating on its surface and has become renowned for the abundant wildlife and birdlife that flock to these floodplains.
