Our Guide, Rob McKell, was absolutely wonderful - endlessly patient (even when the baby, and her parents, became difficult), completely devoted to making sure we had a fun, safe and relaxing time, and deeply respectful of and knowledgeable about...

Upon our arrival at the... More

We did the 5 day tour to Cobourg Peninsula Camp. Luke the guide was excellent, both at looking after us, telling us about all the local flora, fauna and culture, and joining in the banter. The camp itself is truly magical, if you rule out the midges (for which you really can't blame Venture North!), and the standard of food... More

We went with extended family through Kakadu, Arnhem Land and up to Cobourg. The trip was fantastic - Dave and Luke our guides were awesome, the accommodation and experiences were all exceptional. Highly recommended. Eating sashimi from a tuna you caught an hour earlier - seeing ancient rock art - having a subset drink overlooking the sharks and crocs -... More

My husband and I travelled this July with two other friends from Broome to Darwin with Venture North. As ‘repeat guests’ (we had undertaken the trip through Kakadu, West Arnhem Land and the Cobourg Peninsula with Venture North in 2013) , we were aware that guided, small group travel is the best formula for visits to Australia’s beautiful but remote...

The trip along the Gibb River road through the Kimberley region covered a big range of amazing gorges, rivers and spectacular sights. We hiked along many tracks sighting an abundance of birdlife and other creatures and flora , often ending with a swim in hidden gorges or creeks.
