"Born in Atherton Qld (Yidinji Country), I spent a lot of time in Katherine and regularly visited. As a proud Aboriginal person, I wanted to work in an Aboriginal Company to teach people about the rich Aboriginal Culture in Australia.

Working at Nitmiluk was something I always aspired to as a young fella. Being able to take people up and down the river, and share the significance of the Region and Culture to visitors was a dream.

Over the past 14 years I have done work with the Nitmiluk Rangers, Cutta Cutta Caves Team and River Team. It makes me happy – to be surrounded by friends/ family, to be immersed in Culture, to work in such a beautiful environment and live such a relaxing lifestyle. It’s true what they say, ‘find a job you love, and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.’

There is such a contrast in the seasons – in the Dry Season I love being down by the River, and in the Wet Season the waterfalls are stunning!"
