Itinerary

Day 1 -  Tropic of Capricorn - Devils Marbles (Karlu Karlu)- Banka Banka Cattle Station
You will be collected from your Alice Springs accommodation at approximately 6.00am and then our adventure through the ‘Territory’ to Darwin begins. Just north of Alice Springs is the Tropic of Capricorn (80% of the Northern Territory lays north of this point). Further along the track is the Devils Marbles (Karlu Karlu) which are a collection of gigantic granite boulders magically balanced on top of one another. Our day winds to a close just north of Tennant Creek at historic Banka Banka Cattle Station where we camp in tents and swags for the night.

(Lunch, Dinner)

 

Day 2 -  Daly Waters Pub - Mataranka Thermal Pools
No trip to the ‘Territory’ is complete without a visit to the Daly Waters Pub, an important watering hole for explorers and drovers in days gone by and now a great spot for a cold beer, a bit of history and a ‘fair dinkum outback experience’! Later in the day you can take a soak in the Mataranka Thermal Pools, a lush oasis fringed by paperbark trees and nearby where we camp overnight.

(Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

 

Day 3 - Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) National Park
Your guide will wake you early this morning for the short drive to the Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) National Park which is owned by the Jawoyn Aboriginal people. Ancient sandstone has been carved away by the Katherine River to create a deep and picturesque gorge. You may like to take a boat cruise or paddle a canoe (not available all year due to seasonal conditions) through the peaceful water (both optional and additional cost). In the afternoon, relax and watch the changing landscape as we travel to cosmopolitan Darwin and arrive in the early evening.

(Breakfast, Lunch)

Testimonials

"I traveled on a 3 day Kakadu & Litchfield tour in September 2015. The tour was great...the guide was extremely knowledgable and we were able to see some amazing sites including Jim Jim Falls! The camping facilities were comfortable, and everyone on the tour had a good time. The agents at Travel Freedom were able to help me with my questions, payment was easy, and confirmed shortly after. I would recommend them to anyone looking to book tours in Australia."

Demi Thompson (UK)

"I booked the 1 Day Litchfield & Jumping Crocs tour with Travel Freedom and it was a crazy amazing day! The crocs jump right out in front of you, and then waterfalls in Litchfield were great to swim in on a hot day! Thanks to Travel Freedom for the easy booking service and cheap price. I recommend them to anyone wanting to book tours and accommodation in Darwin!"

Trude Maman (DK)

"Thanks for your organising our trip to Katherine Gorge, it was a fantastic experience and we thoroughly enjoyed it, and the tour operator was very professional, as was everyone that was involved in the various locations that we went to.

We will contact Freedom Travel when we are looking for our next adventure.

Cheers

Pete"

Peter Martin (AUS)

"We loved our two days in Kakadu. Loved opportunities to enjoy waterholes, spectacular views, landforms, rocks, trees, birds, unfortunately, no crocodiles! Tom our guide was generous with his time, effort and knowledge. Thanks to him we had an enjoyable time and learned much about Aboriginal art and history and about the environment
of Kakadu. We loved sleeping under the stars! "
