Day 1 - (Lunch, Dinner)
You will be collected from your Darwin accommodation at approximately
6.00am and then our adventure through the Territory to Alice Springs
begins. The afternoon is spent at Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) National
Park which is owned by the Jawoyn Aboriginal people. Ancient sandstone
has been carved away by the Katherine River to create a deep and
picturesque gorge. You may like to take a boat cruise or paddle
a canoe (seasonal) through the peaceful water (both optional and
additional cost) before retiring to our campsite nearby.

Day 2 - (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
A great start to the day is a soak in the Mataranka Thermal Pools,
a lush oasis fringed by paperbark trees. No trip to the Territory
is complete without a visit to the Daly Waters Pub, an important
watering hole for explorers and drovers in days gone by and now
a great spot for a cold beer, a bit of history and a fair dinkum
outback experience! Our day winds to a close at historic Banka
Banka Cattle Station where we camp for the night.

granite boulders magically balanced on top of one another. Later
in the day we cross the Tropic of Capricorn (only 20% of the Northern
Territory lays south of this point) then a short time later we arrive
