Visit a 1 rock-art site

Ubirr Rock Art Site in Kakadu NP is one of two most sig­nif­i­cant sites within the park, along with Nourlangie Rock. There is an en­try fee to Kakadu NP. park­saus­tralia.gov.au/ kakadu/do/rock-art/

2 See crocs up close

Croc-jump­ing cruises op­er­ate along the Ade­laide River. Be care­ful though. It’s easy to mix up the op­er­a­tors along this sec­tion of river so leave enough time to make sure you are in the right place. jump­ingcrocodile.com.au

3 Air-boat sa­fari

Wild­man Wilder­ness Lodge op­er­ates one on the Mary River flood­plain that’s open to non-guests. What a thrill! wild­man­wilder­ness­lodge.com.au

4 Dis­cover wartime his­tory

Visit the Dar­win Mil­i­tary Mu­seum – on Alec Fong Lim Drive, East Point – or any of the for­mer mil­i­tary run­ways along the Stu­art High­way. dar­win­mil­i­tary­mu­seum. com.au

5 Swim in a safe place

Bu­ley Rock­hole and Wangi Falls, both in Litch­field NP, are rightly pop­u­lar. be­croc­wise.nt.gov.au
