There are plenty of photography tour operators in Kakadu, but we particularly like these two because they’re run by locals.

Paul Arnold Photography Tours

If you’re looking for a photography day trip, consider jumping on a boat tour guided by Paul Arnold, who’s known about town as one of the state’s most renowned landscape photographers. His tour – which meanders Yellow Water in a smaller boat – is a totally unique opportunity, as Paul is the only operator permitted to offer the tour, and it’s a great way to combine your interests with this Kakadu icon. A two-hour sunset trip costs $200; see

Tracy Ryan photography tours

Aside from bespoke photography tours, and ‘regular’ photography group tours held over the course of several days, Tracy also offers a one-off: aerial photography tours. Group tours from about $4000 per person for five days including an aerial flight; aerial tours from $995 per person for a full day; see
