WHAT TO EXPECT

This full-day sightseeing tour into Arnhem Land offers guests an opportunity to visit Aboriginal lands, see magnificent ancient rock art, visit a stunning billabong, watch local birds and wildlife, and meet local Aboriginal artists at Injalak Arts and Craft Centre, Oenpelli (Gunbalanya).

 

The tour begins with pick-ups in Darwin and Jabiru, then you'll travel 30 minutes through World heritage-listed Kakadu National Park. After departing Kakadu at Cahills Crossing, the tour will drive across the causeway of the East Alligator River and enter Arnhem Land. Cahills Crossing is a great place to spot crocodiles sunning themselves on the banks or in the water waiting to catch a barramundi.



With special permission from the local Aboriginal people, the tour visits several sites in western Arnhem Land with its towering escarpment to view unusual rock art. The tour stops at Red Lily Billabong to spend time at Injalak Arts and Craft Centre. Here, you'll meet local Aboriginal artists — the men painting with fine brushes and the women weaving colourful and intricate baskets.



At Red Lily Billabong, the tour stops to see a field of lotus lily in bloom. You may also catch a glimpse of dancing brolga, an occasional crocodile, or other local wildlife. This is an amazing day tour into Arnhem Land and an experience only available to a select few.



The operator takes small groups of up to 17 guests in an air-conditioned vehicle on a full-day adventure in Arnhem land. Visitors experience a fascinating mixture of traditional and living cultures.
