Day One
  After an early morning start, we leave Darwin behind and cross the Adelaide River Floodplain as we travel East towards the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Kakadu National Park. Along the way, our first comfort stop is at the Corroboree Park Tavern. We continue our journey into Kakadu along the Arnhem Highway, stopping by the South Alligator River before turning South onto the Kakadu Highway that leads us into the heart of Kakadu.
Arriving at Burrungkoy (Nourlangie) your guide leads you on a journey through some of the world’s oldest rock art galleries and shelters, sharing knowledge of the history and culture of the region. As part of the trail, a short trek leads up to the Gunwarrdewarrde lookout with a number of vantage points to take in the views over a diverse range of landscapes, including the Arnhem Land Escarpment, Kakadu and Burrungkoy.
After exploring this scenic lookout, we enjoy a freshly prepared picnic lunch before making our way further into the heart of Kakadu, where we join the world-renowned Yellow Water Billabong Cruise. This aquatic ecosystem is rich with wildlife, and the landscape is ever-changing. The cruise operates during both dry and wet seasons and provides the perfect opportunity for wildlife spotting. On return from your cruise and after a refreshing afternoon snack, we start our journey back towards Darwin, the tropical capital of the Northern Territory, returning in the early evening.
Day Two
After a leisurely start, we will meet you are your Darwin Accommodation to spend the day in Berry Springs Nature Park.  We will guide you through the well-established nature walk, where the botanical and wildlife species are abundant.  We will prepare and serve freshly prepared picnic lunch on location.  This afternoon we can spend time at each of the 3 adjoining swimming holes to dip and relax or swim amongst the lush green surroundings.
Mid-afternoon we make the transfer to Stokes hill wharf for your Darwin Harbour Cruise with fish and chips.
Taking off from the busy harbour, we head away from the shore, over the lively waters, into the vastness of the Timor Sea.  Enjoying a refreshing cruise, with early evening views of the horizon we make a stop at the perfectly located sandbank, where we can stretch out our legs and breathe in the night air, as we watch the spectacular sunset colours in our tropical skies.  After returning to the boat, we can take advantage of the drinks available on board, and tuck hot the freshly made hot fish and chips, picked up from the wharf, as we make our way back to port. The cruise will return to the heart of Darwin waterfront precinct, where various nightlife options are available, or you can rejoin your Offroad Dreaming transport and return to your hotel. (Please advise your Guide if you wish to stay at the waterfront after your cruise)
Day Three
Departing Darwin, we make our way east to the Adelaide River system and wetlands for a crocodile cruise. Here you will get as close as safely possible to see these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat and hear about the characteristics of these amazing creatures and how they have survived for millions of years. We then make our way back across the Adelaide River Floodplains heading southwest to Litchfield National Park.
In Litchfield National Park we make a stop at Wangi Falls, where you will see the water from the two falls cascade over the rock escarpment into the large pool below. Here you can choose to relax in the tranquil surrounds, dip or swim in the crystal clear plunge pool (seasonal restrictions apply) or take the path through the monsoon forest to a treetop viewing platform or for the more adventurous a loop walk that takes you up and over the falls.
Your Offroad Dreaming guide will prepare and serve a freshly prepared picnic lunch which we will serve on location, as you relax in this natural bush setting. We also stop at Florence Falls and Buley Rockhole, where you will have an opportunity to swim in their adjacent fresh, cool, plunge pools and an option to walk along the Shady Creek trail through the monsoon forest. The scenic viewing platform high above Florence Falls will give you panoramic views of the falls and the waterhole below, while at Buley Rock Hole you can sit, relax and let the water flow past you while absorbing the scenic bush surroundings.
Litchfield National Park also hosts magnificent termite mounds.  We will make a stop here, where you will hear about their unique role in our tropical ecosystem as we walk through the cathedral and magnetic termite mounds that tower over the landscape, in their living, growing forms.
After a refreshing afternoon snack and comfort stop, we start our journey back towards Darwin, the tropical capital of the Northern Territory, returning in the early evening.

Not all are venomous. Your Guide is trained to manage any health and safety requirements. Estuarine crocodiles do inhabit our waterways. Regular water surveys are carried out in designated swimming spots. Please observe swim safety signs at all times. Your Guide can also share safety updates.
