Day 1 - Devils Marbles
It is an early morning start as we head up North. The first stop is the Tropic of Capricorn, 80% of the Northern Territory lies north of this point. Further along the track are the Devil Marbles (Karlu Karlu) which are a collection of gigantic granite boulders magically balanced on top of each other. We finish the day at historic Banka Banka Cattle Station where we camp for the night.
Day 2 - Mataranka Thermal Pools
No trip to the 'Territory' is complete without a visit to the Daly Waters Pub. Experience the local culture and a great chance to have a cold beer. Later in the day we stop off at Mataranka Thermal Pools where you can soak in the lush oasis fringed by paperbark trees, We then Journey to Katherine and our overnight camp.
Day 3 - Katherine Gorge
This morning takes us to Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge). Ancient sandstone has been carved away by the Katherine River to create a deep and picturesque gorge. There is the option of a cruise or seasonal paddle through the peaceful water (own cost). In the afternoon relax and watch the changing landscape as we travel into Darwin.
