Experience Indigenous Culture in East Arnhem Land

Take a comfortable & relaxing 1 hour 20-minute flight with Airnorth from Darwin to Nhulunbuy. What awaits is an exciting, fun, off the beaten track, 4WD adventure to Bawaka, which means ‘A Known Heaven’, located 60km south of the community of Yirrkala. The drive is on a great four-wheel drive track of mainly soft sand, that comes out along the ocean. The very experienced and knowledgeable guide, Rungbar (otherwise known as Randy), shows off his land, the fishing, wildlife, beauty, traditional ways and history. The scenery is breathtaking, just being there will feel as though the world has been lifted from your shoulders.
