We will be spending 6 nights in the "Top End." We are arriving in Darwin at 9.15PM on 4/9 so our first night will have to be in Darwin and we are flying onto Sydney at 3.45PM on 10/9.
Our main reason for coming to this region is to experience the wildlife and learn about aboriginal culture so visiting Kakadu is central to our plans. However the guide books suggest it is worth spending a bit of time in Darwin too. We are a couple in our early 40's and below are my initial thoughts - what do you think?
2 nights - Darwin (no car needed)
1 night - Katherine, sunset tour of the Gorge
3 nights - Kakadu. Explore the park and drive to airport on 10/9.
