Tours of Arnhem Land and the Cobourg Peninsula

Posted on 28 October, 2018 in Arnhem Land, Cobourg, Culture

Indigenous people have seen many strangers inhabit their land over thousands of years. As a result their cultural ways have changed a great deal. Today, the region of ​Arnhem Land is one place in Australia which hasn't seen as much change and many local people still practice their cultural traditions. One of the main reasons Arnhem Land is still such a cultural heart land is that you need permission to enter - it's Indigenous land and you can't enter unless you have a special permit (or you live there)...

How and when to safely cross Cahills Crossing 

Posted on 19 June, 2018 in Arnhem Land

Cahills Crossing is located in the Northern Territory on the East Alligator River approximately a 3.5 hour drive east of Darwin in Kakadu National Park. It is named after the legendary buffalo hunter Paddy Cahill (1863–1923) who was one of the first European pioneers of the region. Today, the crossing offers the only road access point between Arnhem Land and Kakadu National Park. It's a notorious river crossing due to high water flow and abundance of saltwater crocodiles.

​The Arnhem Land Escarpment

​The Arnhem Land Escarpment

Posted on 15 June, 2018 in Arnhem Land, Tours, Culture

The Arnhem Escarpment is spectacular. It is a huge plateau which has been used by Indigenous people for centuries for shelter and to find food. However today, due to the relatively difficult terrain, most of it is rarely visited. People usually elect to visit other nearby attractions first or just view the escapement form a distance. If you choose to visit during the rainy season, you’ll be treated to lush green terrain with huge waterfalls pouring over the sides of the cliffs. The dry season offers easier accessibility and some good swimming options as well as the opportunity to see a myriad of ancient rock art sites...
