Can Too Kakadu challenge treks into remote gorges, ascend rugged escarpments, to hidden ancient rock-art platforms and dry river beds - this is wilderness trekking.
Kakadu National Park is a World Heritage Area covering some 20,000 square kms. Waterfalls tumble from the red cliffs off the Arnhem Land escarpment into shady pools; tranquil wetlands teem with animal and bird life, while 40,000 years of Aboriginal cultural heritage is on display in the numerous hidden rock art galleries.
Get away from the crowds on our active, trekking challenge, it's when you go for a trek beyond the main tourist sites that Kakadu will reveal its true magic.
This trip is for almost anyone with a reasonable level of fitness and competent swimming ability, designed for the enthusiastic and adventurous in search of something different!
This trip has been graded at an introductory to moderate level. However, some days will be quite active involving steep walks for most of the day.
These adventures are best prepared for with some regular moderate exercise. As always with adventure travel, you should enjoy a healthy lifestyle before undertaking this trip.
Please bear in mind that because you will be travelling into a remote wilderness, creature comforts are limited. Your level of fitness can also help you acclimatise to the warm temperatures and humidity, so we suggest a bit of swimming, walking, jogging or cycling to prepare yourself for the Territory!
Your Trekking Companions
Edith Hurt, Team Captain
As a Board director and life member of the Can Too Foundation, having completed 22 run and ocean swim programs, I’m really looking forward to leading the Trek Kakadu trip on behalf of Can Too and taking other people through that Can Too experience.
There’s a philosophy and culture beyond what you would do if you did just a normal tour: there’s something special about Can Too and what it brings to making these group experiences unique.
I visited Arnhem Land and the Kimberley as a teenager and worked at Royal Far West, which supports children in rural and remote areas who don’t have access to the medical help and support that they need.
I’ve worked as a research program manager for Cure Cancer and am now operations manager for a $50 million project ‘ProCan’ Children’s Medical Research Institute.
I hope you’ll join me and Trek Kakadu for cancer research.
