Kakadu National Park
A three hour drive from Darwin, the World Heritage listed Kakadu National Park is a land of contrasts - rugged escarpments, dazzling waterfalls, lush wetlands and spectacular gorges. Archaeological studies suggest that the Aboriginal people have inhabited Kakadu for 50,000 years. Wander through the sandstone galleries and see how the Aboriginal culture and stories were passed down through the generations. Kakadu is home to numerous plants, freshwater fish and birds.
Litchfield National Park
An easy hour and a half drive from Darwin, the park contains several types of distinctive Top End habitats including thriving monsoon forests, termite mounds, curious rock formations and waterfalls. Litchfield National Park encloses much of the stunning Tabletop Range, which is a wide sandstone plateau mostly surrounded by cliffs. During the wet season, four main waterfalls roar from the cliffs to tropical rock pools below. During the rest of the year the calm waterholes are perfect spots for a swim.
The Outback meets the tropics at Katherine, about 300 kilometres south of Darwin. The township is situated on the banks of the Katherine River, which flows down from the world-renowned Katherine Gorge (Nitmiluk National Park).�The Katherine area is a popular place for fishing, canoeing, bushwalking, camping and four-wheel driving.
Melville and Bathurst Islands, known collectivley as the Tiwi Islands, lie eighty kilometres north of Darwin.

It is only a twenty minute flight in a light aircraft or a two hour trip across the Timor Sea from Darwin.
