Ian Morris

Ian Morris has the most extraordinary and broad based knowledge about Kakadu and the Top End in general.  Ian has worked in Kakadu from before it was declared as a national park, and has been fortunate to spend a lot of time with the traditional owners of the region, who worked to have Kakadu declared as a national park and wanted their land to be used to educate people about the importance of the natural world.

Ian is an internationally renowned expert on Kakadu and northern Australia.  He has an extraordinary knowledge about the north or "Top End" of Australia and works with people like Sir David Attenborough, film crews from the BBC and National Geographic, to help them understand what to film in their big documentaries about the Top End.  He was also a part of the award winning film Kakadu in 2013.  He provides lectures on high cost tours.  Ian has a great love of the wildlife and systems of the north and his knowledge is based on a unique blend of indigenous and western science knowledge.

Ian spent many years growing up with the Yolngu people in Arnhemland where he learned their language and a lot about their knowledge systems and culture.  He also studied at University in Canberra and worked as an ecology researcher before joining Kakadu as the Indigenous Ranger Trainer when Kakadu was formed.  He worked extensively with many of the Bininj and other indigenous elders who had lived traditionally in the Kakadu region and was fortunate to learn so much from these people about the land and culture.

He is also a passionate and gifted educator and a brilliant photographer as you will see in the sequences.

Having the KakaduInfo information available on your phone, tablet device or computer will give you access to his unsurpassed knowledge about the region and will increase your knowledge about the Top End which will hopefully enrigh your visit.
