Festival grand opening
Kick off Taste of Kakadu 2018 at Bowali with the park’s traditional owners.
After a welcome to country from the Mirarr clan, we’ll be launching the Man Me art exhibition in the area around the visitor centre.
A sensational musical guest will get the party started – multi award-winning Indigenous singer-songwriter Shellie Morris. Former NT Australian of the Year and NAIDOC Artist of the Year, Shellie sings in 17 Aboriginal languages and has graced stages from New York to the Sydney Opera House. You don’t want to miss this powerful performance from one of the NT’s most talented musical artists.
We’ll also have some fantastic traditional performers to set the tone for the festival.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Taste of Kakadu event without some tasty food. Grab a feed from a traditional ground oven or sample the wares of our Festival Hub food vendors. Drinks will be available to purchase from the bar.
After the opening, you can head back to town to kick on with Kakadu-inspired cocktails at the Croc.
This is a free event – no bookings required.
