Kakadu National Park

Kakadu National Park is a timeless place. It is recognised as a global treasure, World Heritage listed for both its environment and our living Aboriginal culture. We are the largest national park in Australia, covering almost 20,000 square kilometres. That’s nearly half the size of Switzerland! - See more at: http://www.parksaustralia.gov.au/kakadu/people/about-kakadu.html#sthash.4GmXo81S.dpuf

The Njanjma Rangers will be giving free guided walks and talks in the East Alligator region until October 2014

The guides are trained in all facets of tourism including first aid, presentation and delivery at the newly formed ‘On Country Academy’.

As they lead visitors through the tropical savannah woodland they talk about the plants and flowers, pointing out what they use for basket weaving, food and medicinal use, perhaps even knocking up a home-made paint brush on the spot!

The rangers deliver their presentation in a mix of English and Kunwinjku gunwok, one of the Aboriginal languages commonplace in Kakadu.

The Njanjma Rangers are a new initiative of the Djabulukgu Association
