Experience 7.5 hours of an unique opportunity to venture into Arnhem Land, a vast wilderness home to the traditional land-owners, the Yolngu people. When you and your small-group arrive, a traditional aboriginal guide will show you excellent examples of rock art on Injalak Hill as well as many insights into their culture.
Small groups of up to 17 guests in an air-conditioned vehicle on this full day adventure in Arnhem land. Visitors experience a fascinating mixture of traditional and living culture.
Tour includes Arnhem Land entry permits and royalties to enter Aboriginal lands
From the small township of Jabiru, head north over Cahills Crossing and into Arnhem Land. A short drive further on you reach the Injalak Arts Centre where you collect your local Aboriginal guide and head out to Injalak Hill to begin a walk. The local guide will expertly lead the group along and up the rocky escarpment, imparting some valuable stories and insight into the Aboriginal way of life and the ancient rock art that adorns the rocks. Settle under a rock (in the shade) and have a picnic lunch whilst looking out over the flood plains and rocky escarpment, the breathtaking scenery that is Arnhem Land.
Mid afternoon, cool off in the vehicle whilst being transported back across Cahills crossing to the Injalak Arts Centre. Here you have the opportunity to watch the local Aboriginal artists at work, painting and weaving pandanus baskets, and you are more than welcome to purchase any art items as a souvenir. Afternoon tea will be served at the Arts Centre.
Sit back in the air conditioned bus and enjoy the landscape as we transport you back to you hotel/accommodation in Jabiru.
Please Note: Access to Arnhem Land is by invitation by the local Aboriginal people, and the traditional owners may deny access at any time.
