Location: Top End

Darwin is the capital of the Northern Territory, a part of Australia that retains its sense of frontier.
The city is a tropical enclave both sophisticated and laid-back, prosperous and good-natured. It’s also a hub of great living with its cliffs, beaches and short-sleeve climate; its colourful history has contributed to tremendous cultural diversity, with more than 50 nationalities making up its 100,000 population, including the area’s traditional landowners, the Larrakia Aboriginal people. Its northerly ‘gateway’ location has led to distinct Asian influences and flavours.
Visitors enjoy its beaches (including amazing Mindil Beach markets), waterside dining, historic buildings and lively nightlife. It’s also the perfect base to explore the natural attractions of World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park, Litchfield and Nitmiluk National Parks, the Tiwi Islands and Arnhem Land.
Kakadu National Park is one of only a handful of World Heritage sites listed for both its natural and cultural values. Covering nearly two million hectares, the park is ecologically diverse and dynamic in landform, with a sheer and spectacular escarpment framing tidal flats, floodplains, lowlands and plateau.
It is celebrated the world over for its astounding caves and rock overhangs richly decorated with Aboriginal rock art. Some of these date back 50,000 years, telling the stories of life of the early Aboriginal inhabitants to those still living in the park today.
From vast horizons and pristine environments to rich characters and the world’s oldest living culture, Kakadu captures the essence of Australia.

Combine two of the premier hosted stays in this region – Bullo River Station and The Bush Camp Faraway Bay – and experience the ‘best of the Kimberley’s’ in your own private helicopter.

You’ll be soaking up some of the most unique environments Australia has to offer.

6 Night Top End Adventure
The Top End of Australia is a spectacular area rich in Aboriginal culture and home to vast populations of animal and bird life. It comprises thousands and thousands of square kilometres of national parks, world heritage wetlands, remote cattle stations and sheer wilderness criss-crossed by huge rivers, rugged gorges and splendid valleys. On this spectacular safari, you’ll discover an ever-changing landscape and experience three of the Top End’s premier safari operators: Bullo River Station, Bamurru Plains, and Lord’s Kakadu & Arnhem Land Safaris.
