The World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park, only three hours east of Darwin, is a place everybody should visit at least once in their lifetime. With thundering waterfalls, ancient rock art galleries, and a luscious rainforest, there are endless adventures to be had, including great opportunities for cycling. Long haul trips for serious cyclists include the Gibb River Road and Tanami Track. There are plenty of watering holes to divert to along the way, including Koolpin Gorge, Maguk, Jim Jim Falls and Twin Falls.
