Seasonal rangers return with free activities in Kakadu

Last year's seasonal ranger Jol Muller gives a talk at Ubirr

Kakadu’s incredibly popular seasonal ranger program is back for another season. This year Njanjma Rangers will lead all the activities in the East Alligator region which is great news for local Indigenous training and employment. It’s also fantastic for our visitors – they’re always telling us how much they love seeing Kakadu through Aboriginal eyes.

The program kicked off on Monday 12 May 2014 and runs until Sunday 5 October 2014 - and there are over 40 free weekly activities to choose from. There’ll be daily rock art site talks at Ubirr and Nourlangie, night time slideshows, guided walks and cultural activities like weaving and painting to try out.

The rangers have heaps of knowledge of the Northern Territory and Kakadu – many have conducted other tours in the park like the Guluyambi River cruise, and Magela Tours, as well as trips to Arnhemland. They’ll be joined by Christian and Annie who worked as seasonal rangers last year. Christian and Annie will be leading walks, giving talks and running night-time slideshows and cultural activities, in Nourlangie, Yellow Water, Jabiru and Mamukala.

If you’re making a trip to the park this season, don’t miss the richly rewarding experience of discovering Kakadu beside one of our seasonal rangers. Check out the full list of what’s on over the season here.
