A few Top End must-dos
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

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