DLKK5 - Litchfield, Kakadu, Arnhemland & Katherine Experience
En route visit the Adelaide River wetlands, Fog Dam Conservation Reserve and the Bark Hut Inn for refreshment
stop before entering Kakadu. Our next stop is at Ubirr where groups of Aboriginal people camped in rock shelters around to take advantage of the enormous variety of foods available from the East Alligator River, the Nadab floodplain, the woodlands, and the surrounding stone country. This is an exciting and informative stop for information on Australian Indiginous peoples.

Today we explore and view unique aboriginal art & culture, where the art is inspiring, colourful and sacred, from a culture dating back more than 65,000 years and regarded as some of the oldest and finest to be found anywhere in the world. Recorded on rock walls and inside caves which were once occupation sites, these art sites are a fascinating insight into one of the world's oldest and most unique cultures. Remote with spectacular scenery, pristine wetlands, billabongs, birdlife and wildlife.

Kakadu National Park is a World Heritage listed Park featuring many spectacular attractions including the
spectacular Twin Falls & Jim Jim Falls. Access to the falls is by 4WD vehicle only and our vehicles will take
you to the very best of these areas, also giving you the opportunity to have a refreshing swim in the cool,
clear waters under the towering cliffs of Jim Jim Falls. We have plenty of time to marvel the shady monsoonal
rainforest along Jim Jim Creek.
Overnight: Mary River Retreat, Mary River
Today we visit the fascinating historic town of Pine Creek and the historic Goldfields, full of unusual buildings
and memories of the old railway and telegraph line. Located 248km south of Darwin on the Stuart Highway Pine Creek
was named after the local creek which was crossed in December 1870 by the teams constructing the Overland Telegraph
Line. The creek was notable, as the name suggests, for the many pines on its banks.
Overnight: Pine Tree Motel, Katherine
We start today by a visit to the Adelaide River, noted for its large population of saltwater crocodiles.
Adelaide River refers to two different locations: the township and the river itself. The Township of Adelaide
River lies on the Stuart Highway 201 km northwest of Katherine and 114km south of Darwin and has a population
of around 250. Onwards we venture through Batchelor discovering some amazing natural wonders at one of
Litchfield's most unique sites as we visit the incredible Termite Mounds.
