Here’s what happens when you move to the Northern Territory: any friends and family who have “visit the top end” on their bucket list bump it up a few places, especially when that damp Sydney winter hits.
We have had nine guests since January, and visited Kakadu national park four times in six weeks.
Each visit included at least one new place, so the following four-night road trip is a “true story based on actual events” to highlight the best of what we discovered.

A trip to Kakadu is best done by car and at your own pace.
After driving about 4,000km through the park in a month and a half, I may be feeling a little complacent about its wonder and a little guilty about my fuel consumption, but I am convinced the locals’ “Kaka-don’t” nickname for it is more about the pun than the truth.
