  • Sunset Cruise on Darwin Harbour - Darwin has a natural harbour twice the size of Sydney's and a cruise offers great views of the city skyline. The highlight however is the spectacular ocean sunsets that Darwin is famous for. Relax over dinner and glass of wine on board as you drink it in.
  • Uluru at sunrise or sunset - this sacred site is at its finest at these times. Find a spot and watch the rock move through a myriad of colours.
  • Spot a croc - Kakadu is home to the world's largest population of saltwater crocodiles so take a cruise to spot these awe inspiring prehistoric giants.
