Explore the wonders of Broome, Kakadu and Darwin on this unique touring holiday which includes scenic flights over the landscapes, exciting boat trips, cultural highlights and hotel stays.

Perched on a peninsula jutting out into the Indian Ocean, Broome is a magical place set around white sands, cobalt-blue waters and red rocks. You’ll spend two nights here to kick off your adventure. Thrill to an unforgettable scenic flight that will take you across the captivating spectacle of Horizontal Falls. Witness as torrents of waters charge through the crevices from the air before immersing yourself in these torrents during a thrilling boat ride, followed by a laid-back island cruise.

Following your stay, you’ll fly to balmy Darwin where you’ll enjoy a memorable five-night hotel stay in the Northern Territory's tropical capital, rich in Indigenous culture and unique natural landscapes. You’ll embrace the opportunity to explore the compact city both at your own leisure and through a series of tours.

On your first Darwin tour, the captivating landscapes of Kakadu await, which you’ll get to explore across land, sea and air all in one day. Prepare for an adventure to remember as you soar high above the landscapes for a scenic flight to witness the awe-inspiring horizons and spot some of the iconic features that has made the Kakadu National Park famous. A cruise on the Yellow Water Billabong takes you into the heart of this wildlife-rich wetland, while the Warradjan Cultural Centre provides an insight into the practices of the indigenous Bininj people.

Next, escape into the rich wilderness of Litchfield National Park, a destination of stunning natural beauty, mesmerising waterfalls, emerald lagoons and lush forest. Marvel at the breathtaking landscape, from the towering otherworldly mounds – created by armies of termites – to the tumbling cascades of Florence, Tolmer and Wangi Falls. Cool off with a refreshing swim in the plunge pool, discover the wealth of flora and fauna and spend some time with the charming local inhabitants, barramundi and turtles.

Enjoy a day of leisure exploring Darwin and later in the afternoon, the famous Mindil Beach Sunset Market. This vibrant market, Darwin's largest, runs along the foreshore of Mindil Beach and enthrals with over 200 stalls specialising in anything from delicious local food to unique arts and crafts and entertainment of live musicians, street performers and dance groups. Soak up the electric atmosphere and a spectacular sunset over the Timor Sea.

Your next tour allows you to delve into the city’s history during a Bombing of Darwin tour. During this fascinating half-day experience, you’ll explore a wealth of historical sites across land and sea. Hear from local historians who will regale stories of the area and Darwin’s frontline activity. Wander through Charles Darwin National Park to see the bunkers and other relics before cruising along the shoreline of Darwin Harbour covering the Stokes Hill and Fort Hill wharf areas, the Pearling Luggers, the old flying boat base at Doctors Gully and Cullen Bay.

Your tour comes to a fantastic close with an evening out on the pristine waters as the sun begins to set, with a Charles Darwin sunset cruise around the harbour. Drink in the mesmerising array of colours dancing across the waves and tuck into a sumptuous Northern Territory-style buffet dinner.
