This was easily one of the most interesting and enjoyable holidays we have ever had. Our guide/driver/chef was outstanding and our hosts at the Camp were friendly and informative. Along the way we visited billabongs teeming...

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.

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...

This trip was fabulous - 7 days travelling through Litchfield, Kakadu and Arnhem Land to the Venture North camp set up on the Cobourg Penninsular.
