The Top End Trip 2014: Darwin, Litchfield, Nitmiluk, Kakadu NP

25/05/2014 to 30/05/2014

Our trip to Northern Territory was absolutely spontaneous. We bought air tickets on a Jetstart sale more than half a year ago. All that I knew about NT was that there are we could find aboriginal pictures, it is hot there even in winter and, of course, crocodiles live there :) I was wrong - there is so much more in Northern Territory than crocs :)

We spent 6 days exploring the Australia's Top End: Darwin, Litchfield National Park, Nitmiluk National Park and Kakadu National Park.

Initially we had a plan:

Day 1. Darwin, Litchfield NP
Day 2. Litchfield NP, Nitmiluk NP (Katherine Gorge).
Day 3. Nitmiluk NP (Katherine Gorge, Edith Falls), Cutta Cutta Caves, Katherine, Cooinda.
Day 4. Kakadu NP (Yellow Water Billabong Cruise, Jabiru).
Day 5. Scenic flight over Jim Jim Falls, Ubirr.
Day 6. Way back to Darwin.

In fact we visited:
Day 1. Darwin, Litchfield NP
Day 2. Litchfield NP, Nitmiluk NP (Katherine Gorge).
Day 3. Nitmiluk NP (Katherine Gorge, Edith Falls), Katherine, Cooinda.
Day 4. Kakadu NP (Yellow Water Billabong Cruise, Jabiru, Ubirr).
Day 5. Way back to Darwin
Day 6. Darwin.

We decided to stay at camp sites as much as we could, as this gave us a flexibility. We took our tent and some camping equipment, booked Yellow Water Billabong Cruise in Kakadu NP and headed north!
