Need advice: 6 day stay in Darwin in early March

Jump to last reply

So I've determined that I'm coming during the tail-end of the "wet", which is entirely the wrong time of year for Jim-Jim falls / K-Gorge, etc.

Of course, I'm coming all the way down to Best Man a wedding, so it's not something I can delay till things dry up.

I've been trying to figure out what to plan for the days in terms of getting out into Kakadu or Lichfield, and so far seem to keep running into "It's the wet season" issues: Tour operators don't seem to be running - and those that are advertise that they're taking us to places which are clearly impossible (ie: Jim-Jim), many activities aren't running, and roads may or may not be closed.

Any advice on the following would be greatly appreciated:

Should I simply rent a good 4x4 and make a plan when I land in Darwin, or are there some places that I can plan ahead now that will definitely be accessible? (Who can I rent such a 4x4 w/ snorkel from?)

Wet-season tour operators anyone can recommend for seeing the parks?

What is the one must-see thing you'd not pass up, wet season be damned?

Thanks muchly!
