Indigenous Habitation

Like many places in the area, items around Alligator Hole billabong shows signs that it was an indigenous habitation site.  All around the area there are signs of indigenous people using their extensive knowledge to live on their land.  No-one knows how long this has been happening but evidence from Kakadu indicates people have lived in the landscape for over 65,000 years.  It is hardly surprising that they developed such a detailed and extensive knowledge of the plants, animals and cycles of the seasons.

Some elements of this extensive culture will be a part of the experience, especially some of the bush tucker, medicinal and seasonal calendar knowledge our guides have been lucky enough to learn from their time in the Territory.
