Kakadu National Park

Family camp cooking

11 am – 1 pm, 15 May 2019 — Jabiru Area School

This was an event at Taste of Kakadu 2019, which has now finished.

We're busy pulling together an even more exciting program for Taste 2020. Join our mailing list below to find out about events, special offers and early release tickets before anyone else does.

The students of Jabiru Area School will be cooking up a storm, showcasing their families’ favourite camping recipes that make use of local ingredients.

It’s a wonderful opportunity to see how the traditional and modern combine in Kakadu’s family kitchens.

The students leading this event are enrolled in tourism units and some are Australian Army Cadets.

Tourism students will be sharing how they use fire to cook specialty foods when camping with family – buffalo, geese, fish, breads and damper.

Students who are Australian Army Cadets will be demonstrating creative ration pack cooking, a very useful method for anyone going on hikes.

This is a paid event – please bring $10 per person on the day to cover ingredients and support the school.
