Our unique Coastal Camp

Venture North’s unique safari-style camp is located within the Garig Gunak Barlu National Park (Cobourg Peninsula), on Madjunbalmi land. The camp is nestled amongst savannah bushland overlooking the bay of Port Essington.

Cobourg Coastal Camp 

Operating during the dry season (May through October) the camp caters for a maximum of 16 guests, although for the majority of the year just 6 or 12 guests will share the camp at any one time. Guests are welcomed by the resident camp hosts on arrival and shown around the camp.

Coastal Camp Facilities

A large undercover, open-air dining area is where meals are served. This is complemented by a small lounge area which is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the serenity. An extensive library of books, all of which are relevant to the region are available to read at ones leisure.

Canvas safari-tents provide a comfortable nights’ accommodation. The tents are strategically arranged along the cliff top overlooking the water. Each tent is twin-share and contains 2 single beds (all linen is included), a bedside table and light.

Shared facilities are dotted throughout the grounds, all within a short walking distance of your tent. These include hot showers and eco-friendly toilets, all with fantastic private views of the surrounding bushland. Environmentally friendly soap products are complementary.  


Each evening sunset nibbles are served on the cliff top; the perfect vantage point to watch the sun set over the bay. Dinners of a high standard are prepared in the camp kitchen nightly and incorporate freshly caught seafood, fresh vegetables and a variety of local produce.


Cobourg Coastal Camp is located on the most northern tip of the NT mainland; the Cobourg Peninsula in western Arnhem Land. The camp is accessible by escorted 4WD or light aircraft.
