Darwin & Top End Tours

There's no need to leave town to experience nature and wildlife in the Top End. Visit Darwin Botanic Gardens, where throngs of species flutter in the tropical habitat. Take a cruise on Darwin Harbour to see wildlife above and below the water. Or, put a safety barrier between you and your wildlife and visit one of Darwin's wildlife parks or crocodile centres. You can even enter a 'cage of death' and swim with enormous saltwater crocs – if you think your nerves can take it.

If you prefer, head out from Darwin and experience the wonders of the Top End

Visit Litchfield National Park, the World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park and scenic Nitmiluk National Park, just some of the Territory's stunning and lush northern tropics, steeped in nature, aboriginal culture and outback pioneering history.

Take a dip in waterfalls and rock pools at Litchfield, canoe down the Katherine River, and discover the world's largest collection of Aboriginal rock art at Kakadu. 

Best Of The Kimberley can arrange your Northern Territory "Top End" holiday.
