Is there a possibility to extend your trip?

You have allowed a very short anount if time- however you need to let us know what you would like to do- hike ? Etc?

With such little time choose Katherine or Kakadu not both.

August is lively by the coast and the Darwin festival is on - depending in your dates its a fun thing to swe some acts.

If you dont want to do Kakadu or Katherine then tjere is a day trip to the Tiwi islands

Thanks. Unfortunately work commitments only allow a week this time round. Not up to hiking too far, but enjoy the outdoors, gardens, heritage, art and sculpture.

When you say Kakadu is “close” does this mean you are planning a day trip? If so I would recommend against it - it is a minimum 3 hour drive each way which doesn’t leave long to explore a park the size of the country of Wales.

But if you plan to spend a night, or even better two, then Kakadu is great.
