Our full day sightseeing tour into Arnhem Land offers guests an opportunity to visit Aboriginal lands, see magnificent ancient rock art, visit a stunning billabong, see local bird and wildlife and meet local Aboriginal artists at Injalak Arts and Craft Centre, Oenpelli (Gunbalanya).

We begin the tour with pick-ups in Darwin and Jabiru, then travel 30 minutes through World heritage listed Kakadu National Park. We bid Kakadu farewell at Cahills Crossing when we drive across the causeway of the East Alligator River and enter Arnhem Land. Cahills Crossing is a great place to spot crocodiles sunning themselves on the banks or in the water waiting to catch a barramundi.

With special permission from the local Aboriginal people, we visit several sites in western Arnhem Land with its towering escarpment to view unusual rock art, stop at Red Lily Billabong and spend time at Injalak Arts and Craft Centre. Here we meet local Aboriginal artists, the men painting with fine brushes and the women weaving colourful and intricate baskets.

At Red Lily Billabong we stop to see a field of lotus lily in bloom, we may also catch a glimpse of dancing brolga, an occasional crocodile and other local wildlife. This is an amazing day tour into Arnhem Land and an experience only available to a select few.

We take small groups of up to 10 guests in an air-conditioned vehicle on this full day adventure in Arnhem land. Visitors experience a fascinating mixture of traditional and living culture.
