Welcome to East Arnhem Land

East Arnhem Land is one of the last wilderness areas on earth! The Gove Peninsula is scenic with long white sandy beaches, azure waters and green vegetation.

This vast tract of nearly 100,000 sq km of land is one of Australia's last strongholds of traditional Aboriginal culture. The Aboriginal people of East Arnhem Land call themselves Yolngu and today live a unique lifestyle blending the latest in western technology with timeless traditions.

There are many activities to do and things to see locally and we hope you have the time to experience them all to obtain a complete picture of the region.

Take a morning beach stroll to get you started and then have breakfast overlooking the sparkling Arafura Sea. From then there is any number of things to fill your day from local Yolngu cultural tours, art and craft centers, interpretative walking trails and fishing - let's not forget the fishing! Your catch of the day can be prepared at one of our local restaurants for your evening meal!
