Kakadu National Park is a World Heritage Area covering some 20,000 square kms. Waterfalls tumble from the red cliffs off the Arnhem Land escarpment into shady pools; tranquil wetlands teem with animal and bird life, while 40,000 years of Aboriginal cultural heritage is on display in the numerous hidden rock art galleries. Get away from the crowds on our walking based itinerary, which includes a cruise on the Yellow Waters (a favourite haunt of saltwater crocodiles). It’s when you go for a walk beyond the main tourist sites that Kakadu will reveal its true magic.
Kakadu Trek for Student & Youth Travel
Join us on this challenging 9 day off-track, full pack exploratory hike for a unique opportunity to explore the Kakadu Escarpment country, where few non Indigenous people have ever walked. We explore the most beautiful swimming holes, stay in spectacular camp sites and discover significant and inspiring Aboriginal rock art. This is a stunning trekking journey along two of Kakadu’s great creeks (so big you could almost call them rivers!), the Twin and Jim Jim. Your guides believe that this is the best trek they have done so far in their walking careers and are excited to take you into this incredible, remote, untouched wilderness area.
Our trek is unmarked and exploratory in nature giving us the freedom to discover this unique country with the aid of maps and a compass. There is no set itinerary; we are privileged to journey together through this beautiful country, exploring a remote wilderness where few venture.
