Is this trip right for you?
East Arnhem Land remains the same untouched wilderness that the Yolngu peoples ancestors walked, so accommodation is camping with basic facilities, but in a unique environment, under incredibly clear, star-filled skies.
This is a truly remote region. There is no Wi-Fi and no phone coverage. This is an ultimate bush experience.
The Yolngu peoples culture and history is incredibly important to them, and they want to share it with the outside world. To be part of this is a privilege and requires sensitivity and patience towards guides and staff.
