Kakadu National Park

6.00–9.00 pm, Sunday 27 May — Location to be confirmed

The brainchild of Paul ‘Yoda’ Iskov, Fervor uses locally sourced native produce to create pop-up dining experiences in some of Australia’s most unusual locations.

At last year’s Taste of Kakadu, the Fervor team whisked 40 guests off to a remote area of the park that has been off-limits to the public for almost two decades.

The guests foraged for bush tucker with traditional owners before enjoying a degustation that included crocodile and emu chorizo, wildflower granitas and wattleseed lamingtons.

Fervor’s 2018 menu and location is still a closely guarded secret. But with Yoda involved, it’s guaranteed to be unforgettable.

Guests will be picked up from the Mercure Kakadu Crocodile Hotel and driven to the dinner location.
