The Guluyambi Cultural Cruise is a unique boat tour on Kakadu’s spectacular East Alligator River. Take in the wonderful pristine wilderness as you leisurely cruise upstream, keeping a look out for the variety of wildlife that inhabits this region, including crocodiles.

Local Aboriginal guides provides guests with an insight into their Indigenous culture – local mythology, the river’s abundant food chain, traditional uses for many plants and animals as well as bush survival skills. With special permission from the local custodians, disembark on the Arnhem Land side of the river for a short walk into Arnhem Land.
