Arnhem Land is a special place. It’s beauty and rich Indigenous culture means this is more than just an adventure, it is an opportunity to truly connect with Indigenous culture, Country and have a life-changing experience. As this area is Aboriginal Land access is granted via permit from the Traditional Owners the Bininj. The permit system in addition to regulating access, also provides guidance for visitors, ensuring their activities respect property, privacy, cultural beliefs and practices. We work closely with the community to create a respectful and mutually beneficial experience.
