Location

Arnhem Land is one of the last wilderness areas on earth and this day tour will encompass all the cultural and natural splendour that the region has to offer while providing all the benefits of air-conditioned comfort. On this Arnhem Land day tour from Darwin, a traditional Aboriginal guide will show you excellent examples of rock art on Injalak Hill (Long Tom Dreaming) - this area has some of the best rock art examples in Western Arnhem Land and some say Australia. The view from the top of the hill is simply breathtaking, looking out across the floodplains and around the escarpment.

When you farewell your Aboriginal guide back at the Injalak Art & Craft Centre you'll have the opportunity to browse or purchase goods from this non-profit Aboriginal organisation. At the award winning Injalak Arts and Crafts Centre there is time to watch the traditional Aboriginal people painting and to see the women weaving pandanus baskets. This vast tract of nearly 100,000 sq km of land is one of Australia's last strongholds of traditional Aboriginal culture. The Aboriginal people of East Arnhem Land call themselves Yolngu and today live a unique lifestyle blending the latest in western technology with timeless traditions.

This tour also includes lunch to be enjoyed during the day and caters for both vegetarians and Coeliacs on request.

Wendy Blair 3 years ago Aaron was fantastic, reminding us of sensitivities, telling us some interesting stories and history. His knowledge and driving was wonderful. Eric was very hospitable and helpful. He shared many stories with us and was very funny. A great host and all round nice guy! The arts centre was amazing - i loved it!! As far as the climb goes, water and blockout, hat and goid solid shoes are needed. A moderat climb with some slightly challenging parts if you 're not very fit. Worth the challenge though - once in a lifetime experience!

This tour includes some climbing and rough track walking, so you need to be physically fit, but you are rewarded with the majestic views and the 20,000 year old rock paintings.
