General Information on Arnhem Land

Arnhem Land is one of the Top End's most spectacular natural destinations. Its scenery is beautiful and diverse, including rugged coastlines, remote islands, rivers teeming with fish, lush rainforest, towering escarpments and savannah woodland.

Wildlife is prolific throughout Arnhem Land, and includes the region's largest predator (the saltwater crocodile) to dugong, nesting turtles and hundreds of bird species including jacana, azure kingfishers, magpie geese, brolga and jabiru.

There are several famous indigenous arts centres in Arnhem Land, including the community of Maningrida and Yirrkala, just outside the coastal town of Nhulunbuy on the Gove Peninsula. Here you can also take a number of cultural tours with local indigenous guides to the idyllic beaches of white sand and azure waters.

Important Note: To visit Arnhem Land you will need a permit from the Northern Land Council. Plan ahead and apply for a permit at least 10 days in advance at the Northern Land Council website – or join an organised tour with an operator who has permission to enter the region.
