Assistant Minister for the Environment Melissa Price MP said Kakadu National Park was renowned as a duallisted World Heritage site for both its outstanding natural values and as a living cultural landscape.
“Food is a powerful expression of culture, and it’s used around the world to bring people together, to explore how people live, and to celebrate our differences,” she said.
Highlights from this year’s program include a sumptuous four-course dinner with hatted indigenous chef Clayton Donovan, the Fervor pop-up dining experience held at a special location in Kakadu, canape cruises on Yellow Water Billabong and bush tucker tasting walks.
