Kakadu in a day is the ideal tour for the time-poor looking to include all the "must-do's" of Australia's largest National Park; Kakadu. Enjoy 1.5hours of spectacular scenic flying, cruise on the Yellow Water billabong, visit the Warradjan Cultural Centre and still be back in Darwin for late afternoon and evening activities.
