Day by Day Itinerary

Contact Us For Full itinerary
Day 1

We start the tour by taking advantage of the early morning and scope out some of the best birding sites in Darwin. We look for species such as Rainbow Pitta, Rufous Owl, Torresian Kingfisher, Mangrove Robin and various shorebirds. After a hearty lunch we travel to Fogg Dam, a renowned wetland on the edge of the Adelaide River Floodplain home to a myriad of waterfowl. We end by making our way to our accommodation in the Mary River Region.

Day 2

The morning starts with a dawn cruise along the fresh water reaches of the paperbark lined Mary River. Search for species such as Black Bittern, Great-billed Heron and White-bellied Sea-Eagle. We continue our journey to the World Heritage Kakadu National Park, scanning the woodlands and floodplains for Silver-backed Butcherbird, Black-breasted Buzzard, Brolga and Radjah Shelduck. After lunch we make our way to ‘stone country’, home to impressive ancient Aboriginal rock art along with Chestnut-quilled Rock Pigeon, Wilkin’s Rock Wallaby and Sandstone Shrike-thrush. Our accommodation for the night is in the township of Jabiru.

Day 3

Today we rise before the sun to join the famous Yellow Water sunrise cruise. Yellow Water has Great-billed Heron, 6 species of kingfisher, Arafura Fantail, Buff-sided Robin, Black-necked Stork and Saltwater Crocodile. After breakfast, we’ll make our way to the Burrungkuy (Nourlangie) region, to look for endemic and sandstone specialists such as Banded Fruit-Dove and Helmeted Friarbird. We’ll travel south to our accommodation in Pine Creek, home to the endemic and illustrious Hooded Parrot.

Day 4

Another big day beckons as we pack our bags and head for Leliyn/Edith Falls in the iconic Nitmiluk National Park. The region is a hot spot for finch species including the much sought after Gouldian, Masked, Long-tailed, Crimson and Double-barred. We also keep an eye out for Northern Rosella before making our way back to Pine Creek seeking the endemic Hooded Parrot. We say goodbye at your Darwin accommodation after a brief stop at Adelaide River.
