Joining a three day tour with our tour guide Cam we spent a wonderful time paddeling on the Katherine River. We were very impressed of the nature and the wonderful scenery while being on the river with a small group not seeing anyone else. -...More
I have a few spare moments so I had better write down about our splendid trip on the Katherine River.

This trip exceeded all our expectations. It was so well organised.

I went with my husband and 10 year old son on this trip and it was fantastic! I won't say it was easy and there were some sore muscles after paddling for three days, but the scenery and sense of achievement made it all worthwhile....More

Hi Molly, the area we operate in not under any indigenous land tenure, except on our extended tours in which we border some Wardaman land. In the past I have had extensive contact with local Wardaman elders in a number of situations, ie approval to visit, access permissions and even a study to explore the formation of a joint venture. I do make sure in our welcomes and the duration of the tour that mention of the Wardaman people occurs. When working in Nitmiluk (Jawoyn Country), we are obliged to welcome guests on behalf of Jawoyn.
