Seasonal Ranger Program 2021

Connect with our Bininj/Mungguy (Aboriginal) country and culture as our park rangers guide you through some of Kakadu’s stunning sites.

About ranger-guided activities

All ranger-guided activities are included in the cost of your park pass. This year we are proud to announce a range of Bininj/Mungguy activities that visitors will be able to participate in during our cooler seasons of Yekke and Wurrgeng (June – August). You will get the chance to spend time with local artists learning how to paint. Join park rangers down by our beautiful billabongs as they explain Kakadu’s diverse habitats and foods. Explore ancient rock art sites while learning about the history of one of the world’s oldest continuing cultures.

This year we will be arranging all the bookings through Eventbrite in order to manage group sizes and fulfil our COVID-19 safety requirements.
