With the arrival of the dragonflies along with the cooler south-easterly breezes, ‘The Dry’ has set in across the tropical Top End. For travellers and trekkers this is great news, as the Top End is opening up to a host of exciting bushwalking options. Check out our top trips in the Top End that guarantee stunning scenery and a memorable immersion into nature.
 
 
Remote trekking along the Jatbula Trail |  <i>Holly Van De Beek</i>
 

The 6 day Jatbula Trail has been a favourite amongst the guiding team for many seasons. This popularity is best understood when you consider that the Jatbula is a tropical bushwalk, offering daily swimming opportunities in spring-fed, croc-free waterfalls and gorges. Walk along the western edge of the Arnhem Land escarpment on this achievable six day walk.

The 6 day Kakadu Walking Adventure is one of our day pack adventures that explores Kakadu’s top scenic spots, staying at semi-permanent campsites, with plenty of waterholes included on the itinerary that allow trekkers to take a refreshing dip on the trip. With picture-perfect viewpoints and plenty of wildlife to boot, this exploration of the top end’s tropical gem is not to be missed.

Further west, on the edge of the Kimberley, sits Purnululu – The Bungle Bungles. Our pioneering 'fly in, fly out' 5 day Bungle Bungle Piccaninny Gorge Trek overcomes the vast distances by utilising charter aircraft to deliver us to the heart of the Bungles without the need for days of punishing 4WD travel. Explore this fascinating geological landmark by foot over six breathtaking days.

Spectacular waterfalls in the Kimberley region 

At the other end of the scale, the 9 day Kimberley Cruise Mitchell Plateau and the 11 day Kimberley Luxury Cruise offer the perfect solution to accessing this vast wilderness with a stylish and exhilarating form of travel; cruising along the remote coast to reach stunning gorges and untracked escarpment country.
