About our Arnhem Land day tour – Injalak Hill

Our full day Arnhem Land day tour – Injalak Hill is for many a once in a lifetime experience. The tour is suitable for active people who have reasonable fitness and mobility. You need to be agile enough to walk over uneven surfaces and sandy rocks and fit enough to walk up a hill to fully enjoy and make the most of our this day tour. We have a short video of the tour on the website so guests can see what type of terrain we cover.

We take small groups of up to 17 guests in our air-conditioned vehicle on this adventure into Arnhem land. Visitors experience a fascinating mixture of traditional and living culture.

While in Arnhem Land, our local traditional Aboriginal guide will show you outstanding examples of ancient Aboriginal 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 Arnhem Land escarpment. When we farewell our Aboriginal guide back at the award-winning Injalak Art and Craft Centre (Gunbalanya) where you will have an opportunity to browse or purchase goods from this non-profit Aboriginal organisation and have time to watch the traditional Aboriginal people painting and see the women weaving intricate and colourful pandanus baskets.

With its stunning scenery of billabongs, birds, escarpment this is truly a place where you can escape and experience this unique untouched haven of the Northern Territory.
