Here's what some of our Taste 2018 visitors had to say
Watching the sun set over Yellow Water Billabong, eating canapes inspired by native food (thanks Kakadu Kitchen) while a didgeridoo plays softly in the background. Truly unforgettable.

Taste of Kakadu was an amazing experience and I’m so thankful I could be a part of it today. The traditional owners of this land are gracious hosts. Thank you for having us.
—Eve, Northern Territory
These are the sort of events we search out as often as we possibly can, as the experiences and learning opportunities are so rich and multi-layered. Today was definitely a highlight of our time here.
