Larapinta Trek

We had a wonderful time on our recent 8 day Larapinta Trek. The trip was made all the more enjoyable by the assistance of our guides Adrian and Craig. Their flexibility, steady temperaments, knowledge, friendship, experience, sense of humor and ability in the kitchen took all the difficulties out of our experience. Nothing was too much trouble, and everything that should have happened happened, and happened when it should have. They made the whole experience for us a simple walk in the bush. We could not reccommend them more highly.

Koolpin to Twin Falls Walk

Rising from the savannah and wetlands, the rugged quartzite escarpment of the Arnhem Land Plateau dominates southern Kakadu. Great creeks and rivers have exploited fault lines, carving deep gorges and waterfalls as they flow off the highlands of the 'Stone Country'. These watercourses offer a natural walking route for bushwalkers to traverse across the spectacular terrain found on the plateau. From the remote and restricted access of Koolpin Gorge in the far south, this walk climbs up on to the stone country in the heart of this World Heritage wilderness and heads towards Twin Falls. Bushwalking in trackless terrain you are guaranteed solitude and tranquillity thanks to a strict permit system. Beginning in Katherine and concluding in Darwin this full pack carrying bushwalking expedition is a great alternative or extension to our popular Jatbula Trail.
