We are planning to spend 3 days in Kakadu next July.
Our last day will be spent on seeing Ubir and then the Coorobori Billabong tour on the way back to Darwin.
On the first day we will do the Yellow River sunset tour, and during the day see the Noulangie region.
We would like to do a tour on the other full day we have, but it seems like the only really big tours are those to Jim Jim falls. We are a family of 4, 2 very active teenagers, and 2 adventurous, but not so active parents of teenagers. Specifically I'm due for knee replacement surgery in a few weeks and while I hope to be up to 100% by then, I'm not sure if I'm ever going to be allowed to be scrambling and crawling over rocks again.
What are other similar type day trips we can take? What about Maguk gorge? Can we go there in our own rented 4WD? How long will the whole trip take? Would we have time to also do an air tour - how good are they in the dry season when there aren't spectacular waterfalls to see?
We hope to stay at the lodge in Cooinda.
