- Foraging walks with bush tucker experts
- Canape cruises on lily-lined billabongs
- Rustic ground oven feasts
- Ancestral stories and cultural workshops
- Cooking demonstrations using native ingredients
- A gateway to Kakadu's extraordinary culture.

Where grassroots meets gourmet
Here's what some of our previous 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.
