  • Overview:
    An exceptional opportunity to journey into Arnhem Land, one of Australia’s most remote and least traversed regions. This one day tour is owned and operated by the Djabulukgu Association representing the Traditional Owners of Northern Kakadu and parts of Western Arnhem Land. (Arnhem Land is recognised as traditional Aboriginal land)

    As you travel in comfortable 4WDs through just a corner of the vast Arnhem Land country, you will experience an ever-changing landscape of sandstone outcrops, escarpments, forests, floodplains and billabongs home to an array of birdlife and wildlife.

    With an experienced local guide travel to places inaccessible to most. Visit ancient rock art sites, gain knowledge of traditional land ownership, bush skills, hunting, food gathering and bush tucker preparation. Stop at Injalak Arts Centre (community arts centre) at Gunbalanya where there is time to meet with the artists at work painting, or to watch the women skilled in weaving pandanus leaf baskets. (Art can be purchased direct from the Art Centre).

    This is an easy paced day with lots of sightseeing, Aboriginal culture and heritage and Arnhem Land adventure. Pick-up from Jabiru accommodation is approximately 7.45 am with return late afternoon.

    Please Note: Aboriginal guides are not guaranteed on this tour. The driver / guide has been given permission by the Traditional Owners to share the Aboriginal history with guests.
