My Favourite Rock Art Sites in Kakadu & Arnhem Land

My Favourite Rock Art Sites in Kakadu & Arnhem Land

Posted on 01 October, 2020 in Arnhem Land, Culture, Kakadu, Rock Art

Having been a tour guide for many years across the top end, including ​Kakadu and ​Arnhem Land I have been lucky to explore many art sites accessible to ‘Balanda’ (local language for white person). The most notable rock art galleries in Kakadu are undoubtedly ​Ubirr and ​Nourlangie. Both are exceptional and provide good interpretational signage and occasional are host to ranger talks and sessions in the dry season months. Ubirr is situated on a high rocky outcrop overlooking the floodplains, and as you follow the trail encountering many different art styles whilst gaining height, everyone is rewarded by vast distant panoramic views across to Arnhem Land...

Spear fishing in Arnhem Land – how to make an Aboriginal fishing spear

Spear fishing in Arnhem Land – how to make an Aboriginal fishing spear

Posted on 22 April, 2020 in Arnhem Land, Culture, Fishing

Aboriginal people have been making fishing spears for millennia. Today, throughout Arnhem Land they are still a very important hunting tool and are commonly used, especially along the coastal regions. The technology hasn’t changed a lot, they are still basically a long straightened stick with a pointed end. These days iron spear tips are used instead of sharpened stone, bone or wood. Although a relatively simple design, making a spear and using one effectively takes a lot of skill and perfection...
