Whether you are looking to see the daily art site walks, talks and cultural activities that provide the experience of Aboriginal rock art and allows you to see the Kakadu through Aboriginal eyes. You can take a group tour or decide to go with a local ranger, or a local from the community.

Discover the wildlife in Kakadu National Park

If you are someone who wants to experience the wild in Australia, the Kakadu is the experience that you are looking for. You can enjoy bird watching and nature walkabout tours where you can take in the natural wonders of gorges, waterfalls, the serenity of the wetlands and Aboriginal art sites.

Go off the beaten track with a 4WD camping tour

If you are feeling really adventurous, hire a 4WD and explore the Kakadu off the beaten track.  The area offers a large abundance of wildlife and photo opportunities. Take the opportunity to go camping out in the bush and experience the lifestyle of the locals and historical Australian swagmen.
