I have always wanted to visit the Kimberley. So in August 2014, myself, my husband and our friends (5 people in all) had the opportunity to go with Venture North and Dave, our fabulous guide, on an unforgettable 11 day journey along the Gibb River Road. I have been to many stunning overseas destinations, however, this was one of the... More

I took this tour last year and I kept meaning to write a review as it really was one of the best trips I've ever taken, and I have done a LOT of travel. I took this tour because all the standard Darwin - Kakadu tours were booked out and I am so glad I did! Every detail was just... More

We - mum, dad and 12 year old daughter - now know why Venture North have won so many awards and have received so many accolades. They've have developed an incredible business that thinks of everything and leaves you wanting for nothing, except for perhaps not wanting to go home at your journey's end. Along the way their guides will... More

Awesome trip. Their Cockburg coastal camp is brilliant. Resident salty croc on the beach, sharks cruising in the bay, nibbles at sunset to die for ( our first night they served oysters, mud crab, liver pate, cheese, pastrami and sushi while a postcard perfect sunset played out.....staff made it feel like you were guests of the family. Fishing, visiting Victoria... More

Our family of 2 adults and 2 children (10 and 8) just returned from an amazing trip with Venture North. Apart from the obvious advantages of a small number of people on the tour and having all your (delicious) meals cooked for you (and no WiFi), we could not have learnt so much about the culture and wildlife of this...

Our group (3 siblings and 2 wives) booked the 5 day Kakadu/Coburg tour with Venture North as it was the easiest way to experience the Coburg peninsular without the problem of obtaining permits for aboriginal land and with the added benefit of travelling with a guide and staying at the spectacular setting of the Coburg Coastal Camp. Wade our guide... More

It took me a while to work out exactly why I loved this tour so much...was it the beautiful locations? The wildlife? Our Encyclopaedia of a guide? The food? The camp? We'll it was kind of all of those things but what I really loved was having no connection with work or the outside world. Eg. no phone/tv/facebook/internet etc etc.... More

After travelling through the NT to Coburg with VN several years ago and having a brilliant holiday we decided to use them again, this time to the west; from Darwin through the Kimberley and onto Broome. Our guide was Dave, who we had met at Coburg before but hadn't travelled with him. Dave is BRILLIANT, he is a considerate guide... More

We want to let you know that this tour is fantastic. Our guide, Dave, was exceptional: his love and passion for the area is obvious his relationship with the local indigenous people is respectful and reciprocated; his knowledge of their culture is impressive. his knowledge of the area's flora and fauna is encyclopaedic his driving skills are excellent (thank heavens!)...

Last year I took part in the 5 day Kakadu-Ahrnemland-Cobourg Safari at the recommendation of a friend. The itinery was a good mix with plenty to do and see, and relaxing holiday time. I loved seeing the wildlife in their natural habitat (although I was a bit nervous about the crocs)! A personal highlight was the coastal camp at Cobourg... More
