I went out to Kakadu today, it was a very long drive 3hrs each way. I would recommend staying out there overnight if possible, that way you won’t be rushed. If you are wanting to go on the yellow water cruise – book your tickets before you go. We got out there and the boat was full – missed out ! There are a lot of tour buses that book all the seats on the boats, so make sure you try and book in advance!
I would recommend going to Nourlangie Rock, it is very nice, beautiful scenery and you can take some great photos. Don’t go there in the middle of the day, as it is too hot, I would recommend after 3pm or in the morning – unless it’s a really cool day.
The Katherine Gorge and Litchfield Park are very nice. I may even say better than Kakadu, but if you go to them all you will not regret it. The waterfalls at Litchfield are spectacular and have fantastic areas for swimming and BBQ’s or picnics.
I am going out to the Katherine Gorge in a few days as well, I think we are going to pre-book the cruise tickets for that too – just in case!
