The wet season produces some absolutely magnificent scenery in the Territory’s Top End. This is the time of the year our Wetlands flood. In Kakadu the flooding cuts off the road access to Ubirr Rock, an icon of the World Heritage-listed National Park. Kakadu Cultural Tours operates the Ubirr Combo Tour that over comes this access issue. The Ubirr Combo Tour collects clients in customised 4WD vehicles from Jabiru based accommodation
and heads out to the East Alligator River district through the flooded Magela Creek. Once you arrive at the creek you are transferred onto a waiting Guluyambi Cultural Cruise. Expert Aboriginal guides will provide guests with an insight into local Aboriginal mythology, traditional uses for many plants and animals as well as bush survival skills required for this wilderness environment. After departing the cruise you’ll head to the nearby Ubirr Rock Complex, where you’ll take in some of its ancient rock art sites and experience the views from the lookout before heading back across the flooded Magela Creek to Jabiru. Note: Permit conditions do not allow for casual parking at the Magela Creek. All clients must use shuttle bus from Jabiru.

For your comfort we would recommend you bring a water proof bag for your camera, a hat, loose comfortable clothing and good walking shoes. Thongs are inappropriate for this tour. The cruise component of the tour could occur on either the Magela Creek and or the East Alligator River depending on water levels.
