Arnhem Land & Kakadu National Park

Nestled by the Arafura sea, the Arnhem Land Region is perhaps Australia’s most famous Indigenous cluster of remote communities and homelands.

It is characterised by extremely strong ties to traditional art and Aboriginal culture. The connection that those in homelands have to the land has been documented extensively over the past decade as government services there continue to be much more perfunctory than those found in nearby communities.  The drive to maintain the Yolngu culture, inextricably linked to the tropical beauty of the region, shapes much of the conversation that we have had with elders and traditional owners in this area. Despite an impressive and enduring culture, public infrastructure in Arnhem Land is surprisingly scarce and simple projects carry the potential of making a lasting and meaningful impact.

You will never forget traversing Australia’s last great frontier

Landing in Darwin, you might swim in the surreal Maguk Gorge, track animals in Kakadu, cruise the Yellow River, see jumping crocodiles on the Adelaide River, navigate the stunning cliff faces of Katherine Gorge before crossing into Arnhem Land to be welcomed by Elders and Traditional Owners.
