My husband and I travelled this July with two other friends from Broome to Darwin with Venture North. As ‘repeat guests’ (we had undertaken the trip through Kakadu, West Arnhem Land and the Cobourg Peninsula with Venture North in 2013) , we were aware that guided, small group travel is the best formula for visits to Australia’s beautiful but remote...

We had our personal guide Alex who was a wealth of knowledge and looked after us by driving, cooking, taking tours etc We stayed in very comfortable tents on the Cobourg... More

The trip along the Gibb River road through the Kimberley region covered a big range of amazing gorges, rivers and spectacular sights. We hiked along many tracks sighting an abundance of birdlife and other creatures and flora , often ending with a swim in hidden gorges or creeks. Our guide Dave had an incredible local knowledge of geology, flora, fauna... More

Our 5 day 4WD tour with Venture North's wonderfully knowledgable guides Dave and Luke in May this year was amazing. With our guides and two fellow guests we took in the wonders of Kakadu, Arnhem Land and the Coburg Peninsula. Along the way we learned so much about the flora, fauna and history of the area and came to a... More

We had a personalized 3 day tour - pretty much tailored to our needs. Our guide Dave was AMAZING. He was knowledgeable, professional and was just such a great bloke, we felt we had known him for years. His love of all things NT were infectious. He taught us so much about the area's flora and fauna and aboriginal traditions.... More

6 of us chartered the boat for a day in Port Essington. What a wonderful experience we had with our skipper and guide, Hugh! He showed us around Victoria Settlement, explaining the history and many other features of the beautiful Cobourg Peninsula - plants, flowers, many types of birds. Hugh then caught a mud crab and even though none of... More

Excellent experience. We were a group of 3: my parents and myself. Dave, our guide was just great, explaining the ecosystems, aboriginal art, culture, traditions... my parents suspected he's the secret son of Crocodile Dundee :) because of his deep knowledge of the outback, the animals and survival skills. Every aspect of the tour was very well planned ahead but... More
