Day 1

**Day 1: Darwin - Kakadu National Park** Start your adventure by departing from Darwin and head out to the Wetlands Region for a Crocodile & Wildlife Cruise on the Mary River Wetlands, a great opportunity to spot a huge range of Top End birdlife, not to mention some fresh and salty apex predators?? crocodiles! We journey on to Kakadu National Park visiting the Bowali Visitor Centre which offers a beautiful introduction to the Park's landscape and wildlife. After some relaxation at camp, we journey north to *Cahills Crossing on the border of Kakadu and Arnhem Land.  Here we embark on a cultural tour of a lifetime - cruising down the East Alligator River on the border of Kakadu and Arnhem Land to experience the Dreamtime stories of the area, majestic birdlife and of course, hope to see crocodiles along where they and the locals aim to catch some barramundi! We will visit one of the best-preserved collections of Aboriginal Rock Art in the world at Ubirr rock upon sunset. This incredibly significant site showcases many styles of Rock Art and allows us to climb up high for a sunset that will blow you away looking out over the Nadab Floodplain.
