Now we reach Katherine. If you're around day 10 and you're anywhere close to Katherine then you've made incredible time! You will have covered a lot of kilometres and have earned a much-needed rest. Trade the car for a kayak and head to Katherine Gorge for a day trip and explore the area in the best way possible! There are thousands of freshwater crocodiles here, but they are not known to attack people because they are much smaller. If you still don't want to get in the water then there are plenty of hiking trails or you can stay on the boat and take a scenic cruise around the gorge.
Edith Falls is another great stop and waterfall about 20-30 minutes North of Katherine.

Now you're getting towards the end of the journey here, but there is still lots to see. The final week of this itinerary is all about National Parks, and these two here are some of the best. The Aussie adventure continues!
KAKADU NATIONAL PARK
Kakadu National Park is a beautiful place filled with aboriginal culture and incredible ancient rock art. You will be slightly restricted on where you can go unless you're in a 4wd, but you can still get to lots of awesome places if you're not. The UNESCO world heritage site is a blast from the past. It is an opportunity to see somewhere completely unaltered or touched by human hands for millions of years.
There are a lot of things to do in Kakadu National Park. Ubirr Rock is where you will see some of the best ancient aboriginal rock art in Australia. Yellow Water Billabong is full of incredibly diverse wildlife and Jim Jim Falls is a swimming hole where you can take a safe refreshing dip.
