If you want to experience the immense beauty—both natural and historical—of Australia’s primary Aboriginal lands, then a tour of Arnhem Land is the only way to do it. At Top End Day Tours, we offer day tours of this region from Darwin, as well as from several other locations near and around Arnhem Land and the Kakadu National Park.
It should be noted, though, that space on these tours is incredibly limited. We are one of just two day tour companies in the country that has permission to guide tours through Arnhem Land. Of those two companies, we are the only one that offers Kakadu tours from Darwin. Only a limited number of people can visit Arnhem Land on these tours each day. The result is a trip that feels very intimate and special, but also one where the open spots can evaporate quickly. As such, if you are interested in a Darwin Kakadu tour of Arnhem Land, then you should make your reservation sooner rather than later.
Dates and Timing Specifics of Our Darwin Kakadu Tours
Just how limited are the Arnhem Land tours that we offer at Top End Day Tours. We run these tours throughout the dry season, which lasts from the first of May to the 31st of October—or Halloween. In any given year, this period gives us just shy of 22 weeks—or 152 days—to work with. Because a key part of this tour is the stop at the Injalak Arts and Craft Centre, which is closed on Sundays, we only run the tour from Monday through Saturday each week. Depending on how the Sundays fall during the dry season, then, we do about 128 Arnhem Land tours from Darwin each year.
With each tour limited in space and a finite number of tours available each year, you can see how space on our Kakadu tours might fill up quickly. The fact that we are one of the few tour companies in the country able to get past the tourism restrictions for Arnhem Land means that these 128 tours are in even higher demand.
