Hi! Planning a trip from Orlando, FL back to Australia most likely in March (yes I am aware of the weather) :) ... We are trying to decide if it is better to rent a vehicle in Darwin and drive to Kakadu, using that vehicle in the park or is it better to take a shuttle from Darwin to Kakadu and rent a vehicle near the park to use while we are there.
The different factors would be if we needed a 4-wheel drive in Kakadu and the availability & more reasonable price of those in either Darwin or Kakadu.
Also, we will probably be staying the night in Darwin and leaving for Kakadu in the morning, if we did decide to rent a vehicle near Kakadu, where in Darwin would we find transport/shuttle to the the park and any idea of the approximate price?
One last question, are all the vehicles that could be driven within the park, manual transmission only?
Any info anyone can give me will be so greatly appreciated!!! - Jodi
