It is amazing what Graham and his family taught us all today about the Aboriginal Culture. The Bush Medicine and Tucker is unbelievable who would of ever thought it was all out there. We were shown different Didgeridoo and what they sound like, and so many different things. We walked away with so much knowledge and it is great to... More

Graham and his daughter Deann were fabulous tour guides on the aboriginal cultural tour. Deann has a bright future ahead of her! Fabulous tour and very friendly for all ages. Not much walking which was great having a 3 year old along the way. Loved being involved in the spear throwing and the damper was Devine.. Tour guides should definitely... More

As soon as this review arrived, they knew exactly who you were and they all said 'that's the lady with the little boy'! Deanne told me it was fun having you and bub on tour, she said he liked the lizard and Graham told me how he built a little house....that is just so cute. Normally they tell us stories... More

I called in as part of my Adventure Tours/Intrepid Kakadu trip... Loved visiting you at Pudakul. Our group was really engaged and asked lots of questions so thankyou for answering them all! I have learned so much about what your tribe does. Really enjoyed our visit with you. Thanks for sharing with us all!

When the start of our visit to Darwin and Kakadu was delayed by the ash cloud and flight cancellations, one thing we did not want to lose was this cultural tour. They were very kind and rearranged for the day that we arrived even though it was usually run on that day. All of it was excellent, from the traditional... More

After reading about all the great reviews here we had quite some expectation about really getting to know about aboriginal traditions and people. We had arrived only 3 days ago in Australia and really wanted to get informed about the culture so booked the tour. We were quite disappointed after paying almost 50 dollar each. The tour began 20min later... More

Thank you for your review.

They told me that they always ask guests if they have any questions, through... More

We only had time for a short tour with Pudakal but I found it very informative and was greatful to the aboriginal guides for sharing their knowledge and stories with us. I've always been a fan of the sound of the didgeridoo but there's nothing like hearing it out in the bush. I don't think you can travel to the... More

Might be boring to read this recommendation, as there are already many other excellent describing reviews on Tripadvisor. After having seen many rather sad aboriginal people in Darwin and Kakadu, we were delighted to get some insights from this marvellous and open-minded family. We wish them good luck in maintaining their spirit - and hope that many people make this... More

Graham was an absolutely fantastic host. My friends and I attended a tour with just the 5 of us, so was very easy to ask and answer questions. He was down to earth and honest about his people and their history. He really helped us to understand more about the Aboriginal History, both his clan & others in the area.... More
