Walking the Rock Country in Kakadu

By Allen and Unwin

A breathtaking encounter with the magnificent rock country of Australia's iconic Kakadu National Park, from the highly acclaimed creators of Walking in Gagudju Country: Exploring the Monsoon Forest.

It's yekke, early dry season. Kundenge karrire kunwarddehwardde. Let's walk the rock country. Wardi karribolknan, let's see what we can see in Gagudju, Kakadu.

Ben Tyler and Diane Lucas share stories, knowledge and their love of the land on a walk through one of Australia's most ancient and beautiful ecosystems, introducing Kundjeyhmi language, one of the Bininj Kunwok languages of Kakadu and western Arnhem Land, along the way.

Look into these lush green bushes.
We might find something . . . There is alyurr!
Kakkak Kapindi, my mother's mother, told us alyurr are the Lightning people's children. When the rains begin, they come out of the soil. As they grow, they shed their skins and their bright colours are revealed. Soon they will find a mate.

Emma Long's detailed and beautifully rendered images bring to vivid life the rich and varied plant and animal life of this unique place, encouraging young and old to see, hear, smell and feel the land and experience how Aboriginal people have lived and walked Country for thousands of years.
