KAKADU IS preparing to showcase its famed bush tucker in the Top End’s premier Indigenous food and culture festival.

A Taste of Kakadu will be staged across Kakadu National Park from May 13 to May 21.

The interim program for this year’s event has been released with a range of events celebrating the heritage and culture of the local Bininj people through a menu of ancient cuisine with modern twists.

Over eight days, visitors will be able to indulge in tasty activities such as canapes and croc cruises on Yellow Water Billabong, bush tucker walks, ground oven feasts, sampling the first-ever commercial use of the An-marabula (native peach) in a non-alcoholic bellini and cooking presentations by Fervor.

While food will be the focus, there will be opportunities to engage in local Bininj/Mungguy culture, with the program including art, music, performance, workshops and tours of Kakadu’s world-renowned rock art galleries.
