Day 4. A memorable cruise only available during the wet season
Have an early breakfast and be ready for a pick up at 8am for the memorable Guluyambi Combo Tour, a five-hour 4WD/cruise combo that is only available during the wet season and the only way of accessing the Ubirr rock art site during this time.
The drive from Jabiru takes you through the East Alligator River district to the flooded Magela Creek, where you are transferred to a cruise vessel for a magical trip through the paperbark forests. Expert Indigenous guides provide an insight into local Aboriginal mythology, traditional uses for many plants and animals, and bush survival skills required for this wilderness environment.
After departing the cruise you’ll travel to nearby Ubirr Rock, where you’ll view ancient rock art sites and experience the panoramic views from the lookout before returning to Jabiru by boat and 4WD.
Return to Cooinda Lodge Kakadu and enjoy a relaxing lunch at Mimis Restaurant before saying goodbye (‘bobo’) to Kakadu and returning to Darwin.
