Kakadu is Hot Right Now!

Due to the very high temperatures we are currently experiencing in Kakadu we have decided to wrap up our season a little early this year as your (and our) safety is paramount! Our last tour for this season will be heading out to Jim Jim Falls and Twin Falls tomorrow, 7 October 2013. In the […]

Kakadu’s Early Dry Tours Heading to Yurmikmik

It looks like Yegge and smells like Yegge — it must be Yegge, ‘cooler weather time’ and the start of Kakadu’s early dry season! It’s still pretty humid at the moment, especially in the morning when the sun is on a steady rise and sucks up the dew that settled on the grass over night. […]

Ubirr Again

Ubirr is and always will be one of our most favourite places in Kakadu. There’s not really much else to say at the moment other than as of Saturday 13 April 2013, we will be visiting Ubirr on our ‘Kakadu’s Early Dry‘ tour after hiking into Gubara in the morning. The conditions are currently very […]

Namarrgon, the Lightning Man, threatens […]

Gurrung — Hot Weather Time in Kakadu National Park

There is no denying that Gurrung, the hot part of our dry season, is here! The daytime temperatures have been soaring to over 37°C here in Jabiru. Throughout Kakadu’s sandstone gorges along the Arnhemland escarpment things are certainly heating up as well, shade becoming increasingly sparse. While so far this season we’ve been visiting Twin […]

Aboriginal Guide Thommo Nganjmirra

I promised to dedicate a whole blog post to fabulous Bininj artist Thompson Nganjmirra. Admittedly, that was over a year ago… Mea culpa! Thommo is a Kunwinjku speaker from West Arnhemland. His home, the Djalama clan country, is in the Goomadeer River region, in the stone country west of Maningrida. Thommo can look back on […]

The news so many have been waiting for: Twin Falls Gorge is accessible as of today!
