Seasonal ranger says goodbye to Kakadu

Working as a seasonal ranger in Kakadu National Park has been a wonderful opportunity and an unforgettable experience.

Amidst the diverse landscapes of stone country, rivers and floodplain, I became immersed in the living cultural landscape that makes Kakadu home to Bininj (Aboriginal people in northern Kakadu).

The traditional burning practices, painting, story-telling and interactions with Bininj rangers and artists have all been enormously memorable.

Another highlight was seeing visitors inspired by the connection Bininj have between country and culture and how we can still witness this in Kakadu today.

I will cherish my memories of the people, the place and the spirit of this land.
