This morning you will be transferred to the motorhome depot to collect your vehicle before heading east to Litchfield National Park. Litchfield National Park is a true wonder of the Top End, complete with idyllic waterfalls, pristine swimming spots, beautiful walking trails and hidden natural wonders including Wangi Falls and Florence Falls.

Wangi Falls adorns many a Territory postcard. With picturesque walking tracks and stunning waterfalls coming from sandstone cliff faces, you'll be sure to remember your time here fondly. Camping is the only option to stay overnight. You'll find all the facilities you need, including a kiosk, hot showers and barbecues. There are several walking tracks of varying difficulty, or you can simply lie back in the relaxing fresh water.

Florence Falls is Litchfield National Park's best kept secret. The secluded plunge pool is located right in the middle of monsoon rainforest, providing plenty of shade from the sun. From the lookout you can survey the surrounding location, while there are a few walks that provide a different perspective of the area. Florence Falls is open for swimming for most of the year.

Distance: 301km (187miles)

Covering some 20,000 square kilometres, Kakadu is Australia's largest national park. Its vast wetlands and ancient escarpment are home to one of Australia's largest and most diverse bird populations and carry outstanding natural and cultural significance.

Visit rock art sites at Nourlangie Rock - the name ‘Nourlangie’ is an anglicised version of Nawurlandja. The most famous rock art picture at Nourlangie is called Namondjok and for some Aboriginal groups he is a Creation Ancestor who now lives in the sky and can be seen only at night, when he appears as a dark spot in the Milky Way galaxy. Perhaps visit Warradjan Aboriginal Culture Centre where the traditional Aboriginal landowners (Bininj) of Kakadu National Park tell stories of their culture through the displays and exhibitions.

Distance: 57km (35miles)

Make a stop at Nourlangie Rock where you will find some of the world’s oldest and most impressive rock art as well as some spectacular views of the Arnhem Land escarpment.

Nourlangie (Burrungkuy) is one reason why Kakadu is World Heritage-listed for outstanding cultural values. This famous site, with its stunning rock paintings, documents life in the region from 20,000 years ago to the first contact with European explorers. The 1.5km walk invites you to take a visual journey through time to an outdoor cultural museum where paintings, shelters and artefacts present traditional ways of life from numerous epochs.

The Cooinda Camping Ground is the perfect place to base yourself for a Kakadu Adventure. The shady camping area is located next to Yellow Water Billabong and is surrounded by the spectacular landscape of Kakadu National Park, where you can witness the unique wildlife, flora and fauna of this unique part of Australia.

Included is the Yellow Water billabong cruise for a chance to view the myriad of birdlife and crocodiles, you’ll then visit the Warradjan Aboriginal Culture Centre where the Aboriginal landowners tell stories of their culture through displays and exhibitions.

Distance: 294km (182miles)

As you head south towards Katherine, make a stop at Edith Falls where you can enjoy swimming in the paperbark and pandanus fringed natural pool at the base of the falls most of the year, (although it may be closed to swimming at times between November through to April).

While in Katherine you’ll take an included traditional Nit Nit Dreaming cruise and discover the cultural significance to the traditional landowners, the Jawoyn people and be enlightened by the history and traditions of the indigenous inhabitants.

Katherine, once a "one store, one pub" town, now has a population of almost 4000 and is the third largest centre in the Northern Territory. Gold and tin mines and huge cattle stations surround the town. Katherine was also established as an important tourist destination with the creation of the nearby Katherine Gorge National Park in 1963. Katherine Gorge, one of Australia's greatest natural wonders, is comprised of 13 separate gorges. Canyon walls climb steeply on each side, creating sculptured cliffs which glow with the sun's reflection.

Distance: 108km (67miles)

Continue south from Katherine to the Mataranka Homestead, which is situated between two rivers, the Waterhouse River where freshwater crocodiles can be seen basking on the banks and the Little Roper river which abound with Barramundi and other fish species.

Mataranka Homestead is also the home of Maddie and other orphan wallabies which have been hand raised at the homestead. The movie "We of the Never Never" was filmed here, and the replica of the original homestead is still part of the attractions here.

Distance: 168km (104miles)

The Daly Waters pub was built in 1930 by Bill and Henrietta Pierce (read 'Two at Daly Waters' by Elisabeth George 1946) a great tale of the early beginnings of the pub and life as a settler in the outback. In the past the pub has witnessed murders, shoot outs in the main street, cattle stampeding through town and the odd drunken brawls. Station owners threatened to burn the place down or buy it and bulldoze it to stop the local ringers from riding into town, hence the old bathtub and rail to hitch your horse onto. Today the only shoot out is at the bar during Happy Hour and the only brawling done is between the gangs of Happy Jacks (local birds).

Distance: 406km (252miles)

From Daly Waters continue your journey along the Stuart Highway towards Tennant Creek and the Barkly Tablelands, known for its million-acre cattle stations, gold mining heritage, iconic rock formations and Aboriginal culture. This is the genuine Outback Australia.

Visit the sacred Karlu Karlu (the Devils Marbles), where hundreds of granite boulders, some up to six metres tall, are scattered. The best times to visit are sunrise and sunset, when the morning and evening sun highlights their deep red colour. Learn about the Dreamtime story of the site on an interpretive walk or from a ranger during the cooler months.

Meet local artists at Aboriginal art galleries. Hear the local Warumungu legend of ‘Nyinkka’, the spiky tailed goanna that shaped the town, at the Nyinkka Nyunyu Art and Culture Centre (considered one of the best in the NT). Then meet the clever women of Julalikari Arts, just north of the town, who welcome visitors to watch them create their art—paintings, pottery, screen-printing and sewing—using bright colours and amazing textures.

Visit the site of Australia’s last gold rush. Re-live Australia’s last gold rush in the 1930s on an underground tour at the Battery Hill Mining Centre. This area was Australia’s third-largest gold producer, and the centre has Australia’s last operating ten-head gold stamp battery.

Check out the new Borella Exhibit about Albert Chalmers Borella, the Northern Territory’s only Victoria Cross recipient, awarded in 1918.

Distance: 507km (315miles)

Alice Springs is a perfect base for a stay in the Red Centre, giving you easy access to all the surrounding natural wonders. Situated on the frequently dry Todd River, the town has a population of 27,000 offering city facilities, while retaining its pioneering heritage and Outback friendliness. It is the nucleus for Central Australia's pastoral, transport, and tourist industries. Alice Springs came into existence as a result of the building of the Overland Telegraph in 1871. Today this Telegraph Station is a major attraction for visitors.

Distance: 332km (206miles)

Kings Canyon is the deepest gorge in the Red Centre and magnificently beautiful. Waterholes on the canyon floor never completely dry up and foster lush growth, which includes palms of ancient biological origin. A path to the rim of the gorge leads to the Lost City, where the rock has worn away to resemble ruins. High in the canyon and very difficult to reach is the Garden of Eden, an oasis of waterholes and plant life.

Distance: 324km (201miles)

Uluru (Ayers Rock), is a huge monolith which captured the imagination of the Australian Aboriginals centuries before European settlement. It is steeped in the mystery of legend, mythology, and folklore. Coupled with the mysterious rock formations at Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) a visit to Central Australia is a truly unique experience.

For the included Sounds of Silence Dinner, you will be transferred to the dinner site where you will be offered champagne and canapés before being seated for dinner while the sun sets. Enjoy dining on the Northern Territory's culinary delights such as barramundi, kangaroo, crocodile, bush salads and classic Australian desserts. Following dinner, the lanterns are extinguished to reveal a star filled night. Be guided through the night sky by the Resort's Resident Astronomer.
