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 […]

Jarrangbarnmi (Koolpin Gorge)

With Christmas over for another year and 2013  just around the corner, we (that’s Anja, Thommo, Steve and junior guide Flip) would like to extend a big THANK YOU to everyone who’s come on our tour this year and an equally big THANK YOU to those who are thinking about joining us next year! And […]

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 […]

Kakadu Tours — News and Updates

Yegge is here! We’ve finally said our goodbyes to a very “interesting” wet season. Kakadu saw its wettest December on record followed by an extremely long and hot dry spell during January. For a while ‘Gudjewg’, the monsoon season, looked like a non-event but then the rain returned with a vengeance. In terms of overall […]

Gunlom in Kakadu’s Early Dry

Gunlom in Kakadu National Park’s south is now open! Park rangers have completed their crocodile surveys, the day use area is slashed and tidy, the camp ground manager is setting up camp as I type — and guess where Steve is with his group today! Have a lovely weekend, wherever you are! Bobo! Anja   […]

Kakadu’s Southern Hills and Ridges — Yurmikmik

We can now access the Yurmikmik area and visit beautiful Motor Car Falls and Boulder Creek! Come for a walk with us to experience the southern hills and […]

Ubirr in Kakadu’s Early Dry

It looks like the dry season, it feels like the dry season… The morning air is fresh and cool once again here in Kakadu National Park. And while the days are still pretty hot things are definitely looking up. Kakadu’s skies are blue again, with puffy white cumulus clouds. While localised afternoon showers will be […]

Jim Jim Falls and Twin Falls in the Late Dry

Gurrung, hot weather time, is here once again and things are definitely heating up around Kakadu! In Kakadu National Park’s stone country along the Arnhemland escarpment we regularly experience afternoon temperatures in the low forties these days — and with a few days of high humidity just recently, we’ve got a first taste of Gununmeleng, […]
