Take a trip across the Top End from Kununurra to Darwin in a fully-equipped Greyhound bus!

Your journey will begin in Kununurra, once named “the most exciting place in Australia” by then-Prime Minister Robert Menzies in 1963. A lot has happened since then, as the town’s population has swelled from 400 to 7,500 people, and the scenic Ord River and man-made Lake Argyle have led tourism to flourish in the area.

One of the all-time great feats of engineering, the artificial Lake Argyle is several times larger than Sydney Harbour. More than 30,000 freshwater crocodiles call it home, as well as 26 species of native fish and a full third of Australia’s bird species, leading it to be designated as a Ramsar Wetland of International Significance – an area of importance not just for Australians, but for humanity as a whole.

On the bus from Kununurra to Darwin, you’ll pass through Katherine, the oasis of waterholes and lush forests where the outback meets the tropics. This is where you’ll find the world-famous Nitmiluk Gorge (aka Katherine Gorge), a deep gorge carved through ancient sandstone, as well as the epic Jatbula Trail, a five-day trek through waterfalls and monsoon rainforest.

Your trip through a beautiful stretch of the Australian outback will end in Darwin, the capital city of the Northern Territory. Without even leaving the city, you can come face-to-face with crocodiles in the notorious Cage of Death at Crocosaurus Cove, the ultimate urban wildlife experience.

ou can also take a stroll through the lush tropical gardens, coastal dunes and mangroves of the George Brown Botanic Gardens, and visit the Museum and Gallery of the Northern Territory for an overview of the area’s Indigenous art and history, before touring the Tiwi Islands to see artists at work on new pieces you can buy directly from them.

Darwin is also the gateway to nearby Litchfield National Park, where you’ll marvel at the amazing Magnetic and Cathedral termite mounds, and learn how such tiny creatures were able to build such magnificent sculptures. Litchfield also boasts pockets of monsoonal rainforest where you can swim in sparkling pools underneath cascading waterfalls – the ultimate Northern Territory experience.
