What to see between Darwin and Lakeview Park Kakadu

We will be driving from Darwin to the Lakeview Park in Kakadu and stopping to do a croc cruise at the Spectacular Jumping Crocodile Cruise at 9am. What else should we see on the way? We will do Jim Jim Falls, Twin Falls on the following day.

Thanks in advance for your help.

1. Re: What to see between Darwin and Lakeview Park Kakadu

How long do you have in Kakadu itself?

If this is your only day to explore Kakadu (other than the Jim Jim Twin Falls Tour) then after the jumping crocodile cruise I would head straight for the park. Once inside the park boundaries I would stop at Mamukala Wetlands, and then head to Ubirr and explore the rock art and scenery (maybe stay for sunset).

Or - if you have time to do Ubirr on another day, you could also visit Fogg Dam, Window on the Wetlands Visitor Centre (both located before jumping croc cruise), maybe stop at the Bark Hut for lunch then travel on to Jabiru stopping at Mamukala Wetlands and the Bowali Visitor Centre.

If you are returning to Darwin on the Arnhem Highway, plan a meal or break at the Bark Hut Inn. Food is good & the actual Bark Hut Inn has an interesting Top End history hanging around the walls.

Food was better & cheaper there than at the just about anywhere else in Kakadu.

If you are heading to Katherine from Kakadu, don't miss Pine Creek Railway Resort for great food en route to Katherine
