A century ago Mrs Jeannie Gunn wrote a best selling book We of the Never Never. She recounted her journey to the Northern Territory and her arrival at remote Elsey Station, a huge cattle station 400 kilometres south of Darwin, and her experiences as the only white woman in a vast land occupied by cattle, some white men and Aboriginals.
This best seller gave readers a glimpse into the harsh realities of the Outback at the turn of the century.
Elsey Station still exists and the 1.2 million acres of wetlands, waterfalls and savannah plains is dissected by the emerald green waters of the Roper River. The descendants of the original Aboriginal occupants still live here and coexist on the land with the cattle and station hands.
Described by Jeannie Gunn as a land so intoxicating you may Never Never want to leave it, you now have an opportunity to spend time in this enchanting land.
Your highly experienced guide will take you on this journey to meet his friends, swim in clear thermal pools, learn bush foods and medicines and enjoy the company of the Mangarayi Aboriginal clan.
