Amazing Trip to Kakadu
The four of us had an amazing and beautiful trip together with Greig. He had so much knowledge of the area, the stories he told were very interesting, also about the aboriginals. The food was very tasty and we loved the lunch with the wraps, delicious. We had so much fun together, the next time we go for the Kimberly. Thanks Greig.

Fun Day Trip
Visited Darwin for a day on a cruise ship in April. Arranged in advance for Greig to take 4 of us into the Litchfield National Park & to see the Jumping Crocs. Great communication with Alina by email to sort out details as our schedule was pretty tight.What a fun day we had! Greig was a font of knowledge on the flora, fauna, history of the area & full of interesting antidotes. Thank you Greig for a memorable day.
The three days our family (two kids aged 6 & 8) spent in Kakado and Litchfield with Greig was truly a great experience. Greig is a skilled and very pleasant guide with heaps of local knowledge, a great sense of humor - and excellent with kids. Our kids quickly started calling him 'uncle Greig' and was truly missing him when we our trip was over. Living an urban life, it was such a rewarding experience to get out in the bush, collecting fire wood, cooking on the fire and sleeping under the stars. We will definitely remember this trip as a very special experience and can only recommend Charter North Tours and having Greig as guide.
We are still full of the joys of our time awayThe trip around Kakadu and Litchfield was an absolute highlight of our holiday and we thank you very much for guiding us so well. The sights we saw, the things we experienced and the knowledge we gained all combine to make it a very, very special time. Our children (and both of us) really benefited from the time in Kakadu – to get a sense of the spiritual and cultural significance of a stunning land. Highly recommended. Thanks again and best wishes for your business. Travelled on Kakadu & Beyond Green Season Tour, February 2016.
We had a fantastic (if too short!) time in Kakadu and LitchfieldWe had a fantastic (if too short!) time in Kakadu and Litchfield as part of a special holiday for our family – two kids, 12 and 13, and parents. Greig knows all of this country so well. He was keen to give us an insight into the spiritual and cultural aspects of the Top End and Kakadu in particular, which really opened our eyes and souls. We were lucky to catch an incredibly passionate ranger at one of the Kakadu sites and Greig's preliminary discussions were the perfect introduction to his talks. We undertook some walks, despite the heat and humidity, and were challenged with interesting treks and reached fabulous swimming holes as a reward for our efforts. Our two simple accommodation spots were just what we wanted, considering it was the tail end of the wet season and camping was not on offer. Greig is a really knowledgeable, friendly, flexible and skilful guide. We are very happy to recommend Charter North to anyone wanting a more personal, instructive and fun time in the north of Australia. Travelled on Kakadu & Beyond Green Season Tour, March 2016.
Charter North’s 15 day Kimberley Charter
My wife & I travelled the Kimberley region of Western Australia with Charter North Fantastic destinations, our guide Greig worked tirelessly to maximise our experience and understanding of the region. Nothing was to much trouble His sound understanding of the Kimberley, its history in general and of specific sites enhanced our experience. He also pre-sourced drinks and ensured they were cold and available irrespective of the logistics involved, which was beyond the scope,of normal tour operators and very much appreciated. Greig’s good relationships with local groups allowed us to understand more of the culture than we might otherwise have. Although included in our tour, we visited much more than the usual iconic tourist destinations like Bungle Bungle ranges, El Questro’s Emma Gorge; Winjana, Gekie, Manning gorges, Lake Argyle exhilarating as they were. Our experience extended to lesser visited but magnificent sites, including. Australian Wildlife Conservation’s Mornington Station Canoeing, almost in isolation, in Diamon Gorge Exploring Mimbi Caves with the local indigenous group Camping at Prince Edward River & of course most impressive Mitchell Falls. These awesome destinations added immeasurably to our overall enjoyment. Bush camping was a real treat, contributing towards the “Real Kimberley” experience (to the extent that a tourist might) This is a camping tour, not “glamping” but that also is part of the experience. It was for us the trip of a lifetime. Visited May 2015
Fantastic!Greig is a truly wonderful guide – knowledgeable, flexible, and a pleasure to be around! He tailored a 4-day Kakadu trip for my family, and was able to cater to a variety of dietary restrictions, physical abilities, interests, and preferred accommodation. I highly recommend Greig to anybody looking to explore Australia’s national parks!
Superb Kimberley Experience!We and our young adult family booked a charter to the Kimberley from the UK on the basis of the beauty of the region, which truly surpassed our greatest expectations but our real luck was finding ourselves in the very capable hands of Greig. He is an inspiring guide. He has terrific enthusiasm and experience of the area and this translates to an insiders knowledge allowing us to explore the highlights but also the lessor known gems. He is a good driver but an even better cook. He can produce food on a campfire that has to be eaten to be believed. The small group ethos and wild camping meant we felt we got a wilderness experience but Charter North equipment meant we were very comfortable- so the best of both worlds. A certain level of fitness and sensible shoes are required to enjoy the short hikes, as are hats and sleeved tops to keep the sun at bay. Everyone of us on the trip had a superb time.
