Venture North is a multi-award winning, family owned company specialising in small group cultural and nature based tours throughout Northern Australia. Travel the outback in luxury 4WD’s on tours from Darwin that are educational, enlightening and good fun. Experience remote Arnhem Land safaris, Kakadu tours, Kimberley expeditions and more.

Over the years Venture North have acquired special permission by traditional land owners to visit many regions of the Northern Territory that are inaccessible by other tour companies. Special access permits allow us to take you off the beaten-track and into protected areas that have an abundance of wildlife and cultural values. Some highlights include: staying at Venture North’s remote Cobourg Coastal Camp and exploring the NT’s largest Marine Park by boat, seeing sacred rock-art sites in Arnhem Land with an Indigenous guide or camping out under the stars at places like Koolpin Gorge in Kakadu National Park.

Venture North Safaris Reviews

What people are saying about Venture North Safaris


We went on Venture North's Arnhem Land/Coburg Peninsula journey with Alex as our leader/driver/guide/walking encyclopaedia and chef. He was exceptional in every way and we all (six in the group) appreciated his knowledge and skills and enjoyed his company. The landscapes are stunning, the remoteness is captivating, the history is fascinating. the Indigenous art stunning and the people are welcoming. We enjoyed everything - cruising Corroboree Billabong, driving through the Arnhem Land escarpment, walking to Anbabang Billabong and Nawalandja lookout, climbing Injalak Hill to witness the best rock art in the world, visiting interesting Garig Gunak Barlu National Park sites and the Visitor Centre, 'hunting and gathering' traditional style for our dinner, watching crocodiles (and foolhardy tourists) at Cahill's Crossing and driving through remote areas we would never have seen independently. And...Venture North's Coburg Camp is simply delightful - rustic (loved the outdoor ablutions) and relaxed and such a great place to just be. Alex, Trav and Annie treated us guests like royalty, and all we were allowed to do was sit back and enjoy the food (and wine), the sunset and the company. We can't recommend this trip and this company highly enough. and will certainly go on another adventure in our beautiful county with Venture North again.


Had the best trip of our 3 weeks in Australia to the Kakadu national park. We had a very knowledgeable, pleasant guide , Stephen. Told us many interesting things about all the animals, birds , the area and rock art. Would definitely hire him again for a longer tour should we ever come back to Australia.

WELL worth it 👍🏻

Travelling through the Kimberley, it is likely something will go wrong and the test of a company is how they handle it. The trip was great, the guide (Damo) fantastic. Then when something did go wrong, their profit went out the window and we were looked after, improving on our original plan. So impressive; cannot recommend Venture North highly enough
