Time stands still in these faraway lands, so there’s little point wearing a wristwatch! Indigenous culture and tradition exists as strongly now as it did 50,000 years ago, when it’s believed Aboriginal people first came to the region. This tip of northern Australia is entirely Aboriginal owned, so your access to their ancient culture is unparalleled.
Take part in daily practices like didjeridu playing, fish spearing, basket weaving and ceremonial face painting. Be welcomed by remote island communities off the Gove Peninsula and sleep in an authentic bark hut. Sit with Oenpelli artists as they paint and tell you stories to a backdrop of lacy green floodplains and painted rock faces. And fish the abundant blue waters of the Cobourg Peninsula with no one else around. Vast, remote and unspoiled, with relatively few visitors - for now - that’s Arnhem Land.
