Lot of talk and not much else. Food cold and pre prepared, didn't see anything come out of camp ovens. Humour or lack of left a lot to be desired was glad when it was over.

Around a campfire with billy tea.
Good company, good food, great yarns.
What else does a person need to have a great night.
No worries about the mozzies.
And the novelty of having wallabies graze around the pakr while dining made it special.

The night with Marksie was a night excellently spent, it's the perfect experience for you if you want a 'real Aussie' one! We were recommended the dinner by friends and weren't disappointed. The food was great - we didn't go hungry and we loved learning about the equipment, the bush spices and the way Marksie learnt all his techniques. Not only is he a great character, his stories and sense of humour are really entertaining and he's a very likeable guy. Excellent service in a beautiful setting. We'll be back next time we visit Katherine!

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The atmosphere was lovely. We shared a table with another family and got chatting the night away between stories and meals. The food was different - all made with bush spices and recipes taught by local Aboriginal women - rather nice food.

The children were included in the evening and loved spinning the billy!! Kangaroos hopping around entertained the smaller children.

Truly a lovely night would definitley recommend it....

Marksie is an entertaining character who cooks simple tasty food - and does it with a flair. His recipes include spices and techniques learned from local aboriginal ladies.
An enjoyable evening - with local wildlife hovering in the background.
Our visit was on a mild calm night which added to the evening's enjoyment -shared with visitors from many Australian states.
