Recently back from our 3rd trip up here with Venture North and surprise, surprise we loved it!! If you want to escape the rat race, have no mobile phone coverage, no TV and just BE then I can not recommend a trip here enough. Thanks again VN

This area of Australia is unique, offering wonderful scenery, culture and even a slice of European history, plus the best fishing you could wish for, estuary or deep sea. This was the second time we have stayed here, and it only gets better. We flew in from Darwin on this occasion but previously took a most memorable and fun 4... More

If I were returning to Australia and could only go one place, this would be it. There was not one thing that wasn't over the top. The scenery, the guides, the food, the nature. Even the 4WD trip was comfortable and fascinating. Wish I were back there now.

My husband and I went on the 5 day Venture North trip to the Cobourg Peninsula four weeks ago and I am still raving about it. All the Tripadvisor's reviews are "spot on". Read them, look at all the photos, go to Venture North's website , plot the trip on a map and you should start to get very, very... More

The Top End really sells itself, but this Venture North crew turns it into something quite amazing. Finding a balance between roughing it in a camp and making it too smooth and streamlined is an art, and they've done it. Sitting out on the cliff top, watching the sun go down; eating by candlelight in the open dining shelter, finding... More

This trip was fabulous - 7 days travelling through Litchfield, Kakadu and Arnhem Land to the Venture North camp set up on the Cobourg Penninsular. The tour catered for all, with swimming in beautiful swimming holes with waterfalls, hikes, and cultural tours with local guides - good mix of activities. The camp, set on the top of amazingly colourful cliffs... More

My family and I did the 4 day Cobourg Peninsula tour. I have to say that it was one of our most memorable holidays. Hugh and Denis looked after us extremely well. The camp is well situated to take advantage of the magnificent views across Port Essington. You just have to look along the shoreline to see an amazing amount... More
