From Darwin, we hopped in our tour van and made our way to Kakadu National Park. This was my favourite excursion on our trip by far. We had an amazing tour guide named Jeff who was very informative and entertaining.
We began by taking a crocodile cruise along Adelaide River. We had our first crocodile sighting in the wild which was pretty exciting!
From there, we explored the Mamukala wetlands which is home to many beautiful species of birds. Next, we hiked at Ubirr and were lucky enough to see some beautiful Aboriginal rock art. Ubirr actually has the highest concentration of Aboriginal rock art in the world. For an Anthropology major, this is incredible.
Now came time for the hiking…It was +40 and I almost died 3 times but I finally made it all the way to the top!
Kakadu is a stunning place that I will never forget. Incredible rock art, beautiful views and the unique Australian wildlife are just some of the many reasons to visit this unforgettable place!
