Overview

Totally unique 7 hour interactive combination of Aboriginal Culture and Wildlife Safari, with an award-winning real bush aboriginal guide. Hunt, gather, cook & eat bush foods, learn about traditional medicines and hear authentic stories. At sunset, enjoy a traditional bush food campfire cook-up, aboriginal-style. We have exclusive access to the amazing Goose Camp floodplain. This is a small, local business that directly benefits local Kakadu aboriginal people. It's authentic, non-commercialised and eye-opening.

Brilliant way to gain an insight into how the Aboriginal people of Kakadu used to find their food and cook it. This is a "get down and get dirty" experience - the bus is agricultural, the preparation of the food it done in front of...More

If you only do one tour in Kakadu this is it. You will not get anything more authentic and informative than this tour. Their bush medicine knowledge and food gathering is tremendous, the landscape is remarkable. We can't wait to head back to Kakadu in...More
