Fogg Dam / Kakadu National Park tour
An early morning start gets us out to greet the sunrise on the dynamic Adelaide River floodplains.
Nearby is the enigmatic Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve. On display here is a massive variety of birdlife, reptiles, mammals and more across wetlands, floodplains, woodlands and monsoonal forest.
Enjoy breakfast with the birds and coffee with the critters!
Moving on, our destiny takes us to the edge of Kakadu and Arnhem Land and the award winning Guluyambi Culture Cruise for 90 minutes of wildlife spotting, indigenous culture instructions and anecdotes from a local aboriginal guide.
Bare in mind to keep your hands in the boat as this river has one of the highest populations of estuarine crocodiles in the world.
Surviving this enjoy lunch overlooking infamous Cahills Crossing before venturing to our accommodation for the evening and a short break. Freshen up, go for a swim in the pool or take a short nap … your time to relax. Late in the afternoon we meander down to Nawurlanja for a visual treat as the setting sun explodes off the ancient Arnhem escarpment in shades of ochre.
Returning to Jabiru for dinner at the inhouse restaurant (Thai).
Kakadu National Park tour
Up before the birds, we are off to Cooinda where we join the world-renowned sunrise Yellow Waters cruise. This is the perfect cruise to witness the wakening of wildlife on the wetlands backed up by expert local commentary.
Enjoy the full buffet breakfast at Cooinda resort after the cruise before spending some quality time in the comprehensive aboriginal culture centre, Warradjan.
Featuring stories, images, crafts, art and much more Warradjan is a place to go quietly and slowly. Absorb the knowledge and then sit down with female elders and learn the craft of string making and weaving afterwards (not guaranteed).
Following this we journey towards Anbangbang Billabong and Nourlangie. Both Anbangbang and Nourlangie are rich in natural values and are significant areas of past and present areas of environmental interaction for the local indigenous people. A wealth of rock art adorning the sandstone massifs of Nourlangie provide the perfect depiction of life through the ages for Australia’s first peoples. Take your time and ask those questions of your guide.
Following the walk enjoy lunch by Anbangbang Billabong before getting back to Jabiru and your 30 minute scenic flight over the region. No better way to put it all in perspective than from 2000 ft !

Ethical Adventures is every bit of its title. An amazing experience.
Rob’s knowledge of the local culture , sights and nature is boundless. Rob’s enthusiasm for Kakadu and surrounds is contagious.
The catering on the tour by Rob’s wife Tracey was very delicious, aware that I am coeliac I was totally catered for even down to snacks My husband Neil also found about the catering excellent.
The sights and experiences Neil and I shared with our group throughout our 2 day tour will remain with us
Ethical adventures is absolutely recommended as a brilliant way to see and experience the Kakadu.
Thank you Rob and Tracey.
My wife and I did the 2-day tour with Rob. It was an absolutely brilliant tour. Rob's knowledge of the area was exceptional. There were just the two of us on the tour and Rob kept it very flexible and tailored for us. The inclusions were numerous and appropriate. The food was delicious and plentiful. Thanks Rob and Tracey.
This tour was just what I was hoping it would be. Our tour guide had extensive knowledge in all aspects of the tour and was happy to share it with us.
We had a small group, which meant each experience was enjoyed in a calm, respectful and personal manner. The sunrises and sunset were a feast to behold. Almost too beautiful to photograph.
The Guluyambi Cultural cruise on the East Alligator River was a highlight for me. Our indigenous guide on the cruise tried to help us learn as much as possible about his river and some of the culture and activities of the past, whilst we were absorbing everything around us.
The Yellow Waters sunrise cruise was very impressive as well, with magnificent sunrise over misty wetlands, amazing birdlife and an abundance of crocodiles relaxing on the banks. Two majestic Sea Eagles set a perfect pose as we drifted by.
Our food, which we enjoyed at various points of interest along the way, was all home made with much care to detail. Very fresh, healthy, appealing and plentiful.
Our accommodation at Anbinik Resort was great. The cabins were funky and spotlessly clean. The swimming pool was very inviting after our long day and dinner most enjoyable.
Taking this two day tour with Rob was definitely the highlight of our much anticipated three weeks in the NT. The places we visited, the people Rob introduced us to, his knowledge of the area and passion for conservation - not to mention his deft use of coffee cups as substitute cereal bowls - made for an experience beyond our expectations. Take this tour and prepare to be amazed. Every aspect was top class. We are grateful to have had this opportunity and to support and small family run business.
