Take an epic voyage through some of the wildest territory on Earth.  Home to rich wetlands and remote rainforests, northern Australia is a place of extremes where huge bushfires ravage the ancient landscape during the summer and ferocious thunderstorms bring torrential rain and flooding over the winter monsoon season. In a land once traversed by dinosaurs, one of their deadly relatives still thrives there today: the salt water crocodile is the region’s apex predator and has inhabited the planet in almost identical form for over 200 million years. From the wild Kimberly coast, across mysterious Arnhem Land and on to the tropical rainforests of Cape York, journey through some of the world’s most beautiful and rugged landscapes in this incredible scientific adventure.

A minimum of 2 weeks' advance notice is required for all registration requests. If you have questions, please contact us at 503.797.4661 or register@omsi.edu.
