Here, the aromas mixing flavors from all over the world keep on tantalizing your taste buds. Why not try some succulent fresh BBQ seafood, authentic Indian or Chinese cuisines, or even Greek or Japanese?Darwin

About 100 km south-west of Darwin, Litchfield National Park is set around a sandstone plateau, featuring stunning waterfalls with crystal swimming holes, lush monsoon forests, vagarious termite mounds, and clusters of weathered sandstone pillars.
Today, you will depart Darwin to explore this locals' favorite park. Check out termites' architectural feats - the iconic Magnetic Mounds up to two meters high, view the beautiful waterhole at the Florence Falls from a high vantage point, and immerse yourself in the pure refreshing waters of Wangi Falls.

Day 3: Katherine Gorge & Aboriginal Tour
The spectacular Katherine Gorge (Nitmiluk Gorge) with 13 gorges with rapids and falls has a great ceremonial significance to the local Jawoyn, the aboriginal group who ward this area for generations.
This morning, you will cruise through two of the 13 gorges leisurely, enjoy the stunning views at every bend, and discover the history and culture of the Jawoyn people. In the afternoon, join a local aboriginal guide to know indigenous bush tucker and bush medicines and learn about traditional didgeridoo customs. It is also a good chance to purchase some locally painted indigenous art.B Katherine
Day 4: Katherine - Kakadu
Step further back in time and get into a place the aboriginal people call the Dreamtime - Kakadu.
Your first stop on the way is at the Edith Falls with an opportunity for a swim. At the second stop, the gold mining town of Pine Creek full of buildings dating back to the heady rush days, we would like to suggest you try a delicious mango smoothie.
Travel deep into Kakadu National Park, a geological, biological, and cultural wonderland. A cruise in the afternoon will take you to sail through Yellow Water Billabong, to spot various birds and the park's most famous residents, the salt and freshwater crocodiles. Continue with a guided walk to view some ancient artworks depicting the lives of Aboriginal peoples throughout the centuries.B D Kakadu National Park
