Follow in the footsteps of Crocodile Dundee for Kakadu Discovery Month

Published on : Thursday, March 17, 2016

2Thirty years after the debut of the film Crocodile Dundee, Kakadu is going to be showcased to the world once again with the launch of the first-ever Discovery Month throughout April.

The famous Paul Hogan film, and its follow up Crocodile Dundee 2, were set largely in Kakadu and featured its spectacular natural attractions, such as Ubirr and Nourlangie, with their prehistoric rock art galleries, and the world’s most scenic infinity rock pool, Gunlom.

Paul Hogan also introduced the spirituality of Kakadu’s Indigenous people to a wider world, and Kakadu Discovery Month will offer a wide range of immersive experiences so visitors can connect with Kakadu, its environment, its people, its culture and its rich history, which dates back over 50,000 years.

Kakadu’s Discovery Month will give the local Bininj/Mungguy people a great opportunity to tell their stories and share with visitors their unique and special way of life.Visitors will learn how certain environmental changes, like a flower coming into bloom, indicate the start of a certain season. They will be able to learn how food from the land is found, how it comes into season, and how to taste the produce.

Bininj/Mungguy people and Park Rangers will share with visitors bush food walks, weaving
workshops and art demonstrations, along with free guided walks in internationally renowned places such as Ubirr and Nourlangie.

In celebration of ‘modern’ Kakadu and the legacy of Paul Hogan’s Crocodile Dundee, the famous Mercure Kakadu Crocodile Hotel will host a Kakadu film night every Saturday night during April, along with art demonstrations and workshops in its own Aboriginal art gallery.

Visitors will be able to hear Bininj stories and meet the locals at Warradjan Cultural Centre, and nearby Yellow Water Cruises will offer a range of daily tours on Yellow Water Billabong, where people will be able to view a vast array of wildlife: from massive saltwater crocodiles and buffalo to dancing Brolgas and delicate Kingfisher birds. Keen fishing enthusiasts can try their luck catching the mighty Barramundi.
