Leaving Darwin, we travel into Wulna Country and receive a Cul Cul or unique 'Welcome to Country' by the traditional owners of the land, the Limilngan -Wulna people. They'll share with us their local Aboriginal culture with bush tucker talks, didgeridoo demonstrations, and basket weaving. Next stop is the Mary River wetlands system, with the highest concentration of saltwater crocodiles in the southern hemisphere. Get close (but not too close) to 'salties' and other wild creatures on a unique billabong cruise. In the afternoon we head to Kakadu National Park, World Heritage listed for its stunning natural features and for being the centre of the world's oldest living culture. Our first stop is Maguk (Barramundi Gorge) where a hike is rewarded with a reviving swim in the plunge pools. We overnight at our permanent campsite in Kakadu.
