If you wish to hire a guide for the day for your visit through the park please contact us. We have guides available at a per-person price.

Basket Making

The Kakadu Billabong Safari Camp family hold much traditional knowledge and skills relating to the use of various plant materials to make a range of items. One of these is the use of pandanus fibres and plant dyes to create baskets and mats and the like. These workshops include the collection and preparation of the materials and the the making of items.

Clapstick Making

Clapsticks are an important traditional musical instrument. You will hear their rhythms  in many of our traditional music and dance performances. These songs and stories were not only entertainment but also part of ceremonies, and way of transfering cultural knowledge.

Bush Tucker

The Aboriginal people, or Bininj Mungguy as they wish to be referred to, have been living off the many bush foods that the land has provided for many generations, and will for many more generations to come.

Bush foods are integral to the Bininj Mungguy way of life. It is very important that the knowledge of how to find, gather and preserve these foods is kept alive and passed on to future generations.

Bush foods are available seasonally, and the Bininj Mungguy live by six seasons here in Kakadu and the West Arnhem Region. There are different foods available at different times of the year and the land indicates to the people when to go and hunt and gather these foods.

Kakadu Billabong Safari Camp takes bookings from July – mid September.

The camp overlooks the billabong and is wrapped by woodland forest to the North and North-east, and wetland to the South and West.
