Darwin Day Trips & Excursions

Take a trip into the postcards you've been sending home. Day tours departing Darwin can take you to many of the National Parks around the top end of Northern Territory so you can experience the beauty that is the Australian Wilderness. See actual Aboriginal cave paintings and witness deadly crocodiles as you tour Kakadu or NItmiluk National Parks by boat, car, foot or air. While you're out there stop for lunch and a swim in the crystal clear waters of a rockpool before trecking through rainforests, canyons and gorges. Make sure you take your camera though because when you point to the beautiful locations on your postcards no one will believe you were actually there.
