Join Autopia Tours on an exclusive 4wd safari adventure of a lifetime showcasing the very best Kakadu & Litchfield National Park has to offer. Discover some of the oldest and best-preserved Aboriginal Rock Art in the world. And keep a lookout for some of our prehistoric friends (crocodiles) as we cruise the ancient wetlands by boat.
Autopia Tours visits spectacular waterfalls and cools off in some of the most beautiful natural plunge pools imaginable. We’ll be exploring some truly spectacular countryside, among pockets of rainforest packed with endemic species of flora and fauna. We provide a comfortable traditional swag experience (canvas-covered bed roll)
Start your adventure by departing from Darwin and heading out to the Wetlands Region for a Crocodile and 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 Center, 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. We will visit one of the best-preserved collections of Aboriginal Rock Art in the world at Ubirr Rock at 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. After a big day, we head back to our cozy camp and prepare dinner together, enjoying an evening with our fellow travelers.

We rise and shine early on day 2 and make our way South to Kakadu National Park. Today we’ll spend the day soaking up the spectacular natural beauty of the area, hiking through lush monsoon rainforests, swimming in pristine plunge pools and waterfalls surrounded by steep escarpments and rocky cliffs. We generally visit Jim Jim Falls or Twin Falls when they are seasonally accessible, alternatively, we will stop in at Barramundi Gorge (Maguk) or other waterfalls such as Yurmikmik (Motor Car Falls).
There are many factors affecting accessibility, although your guide will ensure you get the best experience possible. Time permitting, we stop at Nourlangie Rock, another indigenous rock art site where archaeologists have uncovered works dating back over 20,000 years. We explore the evolving social, cultural, and environmental changes in the area over time before making our way back to camp for a hearty dinner and a well-earned rest.

We stop for a quick refreshment break at the Adelaide River before our journey leads us to Litchfield National Park. We spend the afternoon immersed in Litchfield’s natural oasis of waterfalls, spring-fed streams and rugged sandstone escarpments. We’ll spend time in any combination of Buley Rockholes, Wangi Falls or Florence Falls for a refreshing soak in picturesque rock holes and waterfalls. Discover the uniquely impressive Magnetic and Cathedral Termite Mounds before making our way back to Darwin, arriving back to your accommodation at approximately 7:00pm.
