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

We specifically chose to come to Kakadu during the wet season to experience it during this unbelievble period. The weather was very unpredictable and considering we had two children (6 and 10) flexible planning, creativity, promptness and a lot of patience were all the qualities that Venture North had. They were "going an extra mile" every day for us! The... More

I cannot even begin to say how great this trip was. From the minute we were picked up to the drop off everything exceeded expectations. Some folks would think signing up for a five day tour with three kids is a recipe for disaster. You couldn't be more wrong with this adventure. The agenda was balanced with a good mix... More

Last year my husband and I enjoyed a trip from Darwin to the Coburg Peninsula with Venture North. Two of our friends had also had a great time on a similar trip earlier. So when the proposal for a safari to the Kimberley (Darwin to Broome) was mooted we quickly asked 2 other friends, making a group of six (age... More
