HOLIDAY COST. Approx. $1500 per person, including return flights to Darwin, 6 nights twin share or triple share cabin or motel accommodation, 7 day minibus hire, fuel, extra kilometres and vehicle insurance. AAT Kings is charging $1475 for 4 day camping tours and that doesn't include airfares or motel accommodation. In other words, our 7 day holiday is absolutely excellent value.

ABORIGINAL CULTURAL TOURS. We have added one Aboriginal cultural tour to our itinerary, to make our holiday experience much more interesting for everyone. The Guluyambi Cultural Cruise is rated as one of the best Aboriginal cultural tours in the Kakadu National Park and will cost about $79 per person.

BOOKINGS. We have already booked 2 x 12 seater minibuses and accommodation for 20 people and will be staying 2 nights at Jabiru, Katherine & Batchelor. Unfortunately, we have to book everything at least 12 months in advance to get the best prices and secure our minibus and accommodation bookings. We have also booked 5 hotel rooms in Darwin on the last day.
