Great opportunity meeting Graham and his daughter for a couple of hours. Would quite happily have spent a day chatting to him and learning about the indigenous culture. A very unique opportunity.

we came as part of a tour to Litchfield, and really enjoyed the sharing of culture and laughs, how clever for Grandmother to make a toy turtle as something different than dilly bag Mackay Qld

Interesting father and daughter share their knowledge and the love of their culture. Both displayed a wonderful sense of humour. A must to begin any Kakadu tour.

Your host Graham has a passion for collecting guitars and supported Yothu Yindi and Paul Kelly he tells us. His daughter Deanne tells us their mother has her own passion for collecting bags. I mention this because as they discuss and teach you about their culture they interweave stories of their own lives in a friendly and endearing manner. It... More

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

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
