Welcome to Arnhem Land
Arnhem Land is a vast, overwhelming and mysterious corner of the NT. About the size of the state of Victoria and with a population of only around 17,000, mostly Yolngu people, this Aboriginal reserve is one of Australia's last great untouched wilderness areas. Most people live on outstations, combining traditional practices with modern Western ones, so they might go out for a hunt and be back in time to watch the 6pm news. Travelling out here requires careful planning, but it's a small price to pay for visiting one of Australia's most ruggedly beautiful and culturally intriguing corners.
