KAKADU'S ABORIGINAL CULTURE

Immerse yourself in the stone country of Kakadu and one of Australia's greatest strongholds of Aboriginal rock art and culture.

Just a short hop by light aircraft across the river systems that separate Bamurru Plains from Kakadu brings you to the heart of this country. Rock art galleries reveal stories of Aboriginal people and their ancient culture. Textures of colours, vistas across savannah woodlands and floodplains provide a sense of the spirituality of this ancient landscape.

From rock overhangs and caves at Ubirr Rock (think classic scenes from Crocodile Dundee) to the meandering waters of the East Alligator River that drains from the stone country of Arnhem Land and marks the boundary between Kakadu National Park and Arnhem Land, this day will expose the senses to country that is rich in Aboriginal culture, flora and fauna. 

Travelling with Wild Bush Luxury’s field guides in our custom built vehicle, your day will include a scenic flight into Kakadu, a bush picnic lunch and the chance to spend time with an Aboriginal guide on the waters of the East Alligator River before returning overland, with a stop at the Bowali Visitor Centre, returning in time for sundowner drinks, canapes and the comfort of the safari lodge as the sun sets over Bamurru Plains. 

"For culture vultures a tour to Kakadu National Park, flying in on a charter plane from the station's airstrip and returning by air-conditioned four-wheel drive, is a must. Highlights include an Aboriginal guided boat trip along the East Alligator River (thick with crocodiles, obviously) and ancient rock art" Carolyn Beasley for South China Morning Post
