Top End Tours Australia

Owned and operated by Mike and Jenny Jarvis, they are fully accredited and insured to run professional Top Ends Tours Australia specialising in nature tours in Northern Territory’s National Parks, so your safety and well-being is assured. Mike Jarvis, as one of the leading guides, has been a nature enthusiast from his earliest memories and brings a fascinating fusion of Aboriginal culture and knowledge when showing wildlife lovers an extensive variety of endemic bird, mammal and reptile species across a mosaic of unspoiled habitats.
For any guest, the well-being of the natural environment and its flora and fauna are of paramount concern to Experience the Wild and they endeavour to minimise the impact of their operation on the environment in every way possible. This is done without compromising any aspect of the comfort, safety and enjoyment of their guests. The opportunity to learn about the wildlife is enhanced by an insight into the amazing relationship that the local Indigenous people have. This is the oldest continuous living culture in the world and continues to have a profound connection with the land and its wildlife. This is evident in the stories and the ancient rock art that feature in some of the areas they visit.

The largest extant reptile on the planet is the Estuarine Crocodile. They are present in waterways throughout most of the Top End from the coast down to Katherine, 300 kilometres south of Darwin. Males can grow up to six metres but most are four to five metres (big enough to be very dangerous). They can be safely seen well back from the waters’ edge or on the Yellow Water cruise in Kakadu. Johnson’s Crocodile is only found in freshwater, grows to a maximum of three metres and is not considered dangerous.
The spectacular Frilled Lizard is mostly seen during the wet season, it spends the dry season high up in trees, conserving its energy. Gilbert’s Dragons are a near relative of the Frilled Lizard and are much more common.
Black Wallaroo is an escarpment endemic and only seen in Kakadu and Arnhem Land. Wilkin’s Rock Wallaby is found in the rocky escarpment areas of Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks, and Agile Wallabies are seen in a range of wooded habitats across the Top End. Orange Lacewing, Swamp Tiger and Lesser Wanderer are some of the beautiful butterfly species seen and other invertebrates include the Giant Darwin Stick Insect which grows to a length of thirty centimetres.
Termites play a vital role in the ecology of the savannah woodland habitat and they grow to as much as seven metres in height!
