Start your day tour around Australia's largest National Park by being picked up from your hotel in Darwin and depart for the Arnhem Highway across the Adelaide River and Marrakai Plains. Upon arriving at the park, you will enjoy a delicious buffet lunch followed by a cruise down the famous Yellow Water - the perfect place to search for the saltwater crocodiles and colorful birdlife this region is famous for! Next, you will visit the Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre to view the informative displays depicting the traditions of Kakadu Aboriginal culture. Your final stop of the tour will be the Nourlangie Rock Art Site, a place that used to serve as a shelter for indigenous people thousands of years ago. While taking shelter, the rock has evolved into a canvas that illustrates the spiritual culture of these people. Follow your guide on a 1.5km walk around the base of the rock and get to see the different form of rock art paintings. At the end of your tour, you will be escorted back to your shuttle bus and be taken to your hotel in Darwin.
Darwin is hailed as the tropical “Top End” of the Northern Territories, offering up a wonderful array of fantastic sightseeing destinations right up at the coast. And one Darwin Big Bus Hop On Hop Off tour pass is all you need to see the most of the city and its most enjoyable sights! The Red Tour, taking place in the morning, takes you across the scenes of the coast, visiting the Crocasaurus Cove, Doctor's Gully, all the way to the tip of the Cullen Bay Jetty. Part of the cultural sights to see are the Mindil Beach Sunset Markets, full of delicious, Asian inspired food, shopping stalls, live music performances, and the beautiful sorbet-colored sunsets. Uncover history with the stops at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, and the Military Museum (Blue Tour only). Out in the waterfronts, at Stokes Hill Wharf, and the Fort Hill Wharf, you'll see yachts and boats pulling in, with the occasional cruise ship docking, as the splendid sights of the coast lay out before you. All the while, English commentary will be provided on the bus, giving you vital and fascinating information about each stop. In case you want to explore the stop a little more, just hop off the bus and visit the area on your own! When you're done, just hop back onto the next bus that comes along and continue your tour of Darwin. With up to two days validity on your pass, you can see as much of Darwin as you want.
Bus drivers are very friendly and helpful. Alighted at the Casino/Botanic Gardens, Art museum, Military museum and waterfront station. Casino is quite awesome as the interior is smoke-free and has designated smoking corner outside. Botanic gardens is quite a big walk so will only recommend it for cooler weather. Art museum could be somewhere to spent more time. Military museum have quite a few outdoor exhibitions but mostly air-conditioned. Waterfront station has a few restaurants and a water slide. Definitely worth the money :)
