Kakadu Retreat

David Wolfe Kakadu Adventure Retreat

Monday 10th June – Saturday 15th June, 2013

Waterfall, Kakadu National Park

David Wolfe and Soul Fire Spirit Adventures come together to host the highlight of the 2013 tour, an all-inclusive 5 day retreat in the sacred world heritage area of Kakadu and Arnhem Land.

Together with David, we will be immersed in this bio-diverse, culturally rich area, traveling by 4-wheel-drive to waterfalls, swimming in clear pools, climbing rocky escarpments endowed with ancient rock art, cruising Yellow Waters Billabong at both sunrise and sunset, enjoying the abundance of exotic bird-life and the unique experience of seeing crocodiles in their natural habitat.


We will view some of the worlds’ finest rock art over 20,000 years old, and you will get to feel what it is like to walk on earth and rock that were once ancient sea beds, billions of years old. This is some of the most ancient land on the planet, and you will feel the essence and of this timeless place, as we connect with the powerful spirit it has to offer. Imagine listening to one of David’s inspiring talks, overlooking the magnificent landscape of Arnhem land, soaking in the atmosphere and the experience of being in magical Kakadu.

Kakadu Rock Art

Guided by local experts, we are privileged to have the opportunity to visit parts of Arnhem land that are normally off-limits to “tourists”. With the utmost of respect, we will meet with the traditional owners of this land, and share time with the elders and community to deepen our understanding and connection with the natural wisdom and intelligence of a culture, that is still living harmoniously with nature with little or no impact on the natural environment. Learn about the natural superfoods found in this area, such as the Kakadu Plum, and discover the way these foods have been used for centuries.

Join David Wolfe as we journey through this northern gateway into one of the most stunning landscapes you will ever see – from contrasting ancient rugged escarpments to abundant billabongs and river systems; from majestic waterfalls to breathtaking gorges.  This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to spend five full days with the master of superfoods himself! Completely immerse in David’s teachings, as he tunes into this sacred land and brings us leading-edge information for today that encompasses the wisdom of the ages. David’s passion for nature will become part of your experience, as we travel together through this ultimate of destinations!
