Comprising the Arnhem, Kakadu and Stuart highways, Nature’s Way is the scenic route that links two of Australia’s most spectacular national parks: Litchfield and World Heritage-listed Kakadu. Both have an abundance of freshwater swimming holes and stunning waterfalls, and Kakadu is also lauded for its walks, Aboriginal art sites, escarpments and jaw-dropping views over Arnhem Land. On a map, the drive resembles a triangle. It's a route with three main segments. First take in the wetlands around Darwin before spending two days exploring Kakadu and a final day adventuring in the waterholes and tropical bush of Litchfield.
