A special place in Kakadu National Park
SHARE FUN AND LEARNING WITH LIKE-MINDED PEOPLE WHILE RAISING FUNDS FOR ECNT!
*Previous participants take note - this trip will feature a new destination!
Join Andy Peart, an experienced bushwalking tour guide, accompanied by local ecologist David Liddle for a special four day walk through Kakadu National Park.
The Arnhem Land escarpment is perhaps the part of our Top End with the highest number of endemic plants and animals. The area has been inhabited by Aboriginal people continuously for tens of thousands of years (since before modern humans first entered Europe) and is still the case, with townships, ranger stations and independent schools built on the stone country not far over the national park's border. Come and share a small part of this area with us as we enjoy walking, camping, swimming and appreciating and learning about it's natural and cultural heritage, along with some of the environmental challenges the area faces.
Date: 1-4 September 2023 - Four days (Friday-Monday)
Grade: medium-difficult (off-track walking through rough, remote woodland and along rocky creeks with an overnight pack). May suit some children over 12 with bushwalking experience, if accompanied by an adult.
Food: Evening meals provided (each participant carries a share of the ingredients).
Equipment: Self-supplied (loan of camping equipment may be available.)
Transport: Participants are encouraged to share transport.
Requested financial contribution: $600 (Territory Guardians/ ECNT members: $550).

ECNT Bushwalks are about enjoying yourself, getting to know the landscapes and learning about their natural heritage. We’ll also discuss how we can respond to various threats to animals and plants in these places.
Note that these trips are not tours, but rather private excursions which you’re welcome to share with us. In return we ask that you make a financial contribution, which will be used to help ECNT to continue and improve the work we do. The coordination of these trips is all done by volunteers - your financial contribution helps to empower ECNT's advocacy for Top End plants and animals and their habitats.
Thanks to Willis's Walkabouts for their support in making this trip happen.
