First visit to Darwin, the Northern Territory, and especially Kakadu. Going there, and especially staying in Gagudju Lodge Cooinda, tells a lot about what top end vacation is all about. Surrounded by Kakadu National Park, it offers wide range of stay; from plain room, fancy lodge to caravan.
I went there during wet season, but spent most of the day outside the room. Not because there isn't much in the room (a TV with limited channels, and several magz about Kakadu area), but the whole idea of enjoying Kakadu is about staying outside. The thick-green surrounding the property. Chillin' top end breeze indeed, but they have a nice Barra Bistro & Bar to warm the day. Saw some families with kids playing by the pool in the middle of the cold. Whew..
If you like getting in touch with nature, the pair -Kakadu National Park and Gagudju Lodge Cooinda- is suitable for your great escape. Don't forget to take the Yellow Water Cruise Sunrise from the lodge to experience the rich natural beauty of Kakadu.
