#EastArnhemLand, that vast, mysterious top corner of the Northern Territory, is one of @Australia’s last great untouched wilderness areas. Sure, you’ll get bragging rights for holidaying somewhere so far-flung, but there are many more reasons to travel to this spectacular part of the world. The region is home to some of the country's most pristine coastlines with a number of beaches just a short drive from the main township of #Nhulunbuy (#Gove), including Cape Wirrwawuy. Join a fishing charter and spend the day trying to reel in a barramundi or explore various bush walking trails through pretty wetlands, where you can spot native wildlife. East Arnhem Land is only a short flight from #Darwin or can be accessed via the Central Arnhem Road. Don't forget to look into permits before your trip! Check out our story for more epic scenes 🙌 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @iamsavi.  #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #ArnhemLand

Camping goals 🙌 #EastArnhemLand is a nature lovers' paradise with wild and untamed landscapes that have remained the same for centuries. @talesofavanwife shared this awesome shot of her sweet set-up at Little Bondi - one of the many stunning beaches within a relatively short driving distance from #Nhulunbuy (#Gove), the region's main township. Not far from Little Bondi (Baringura), you'll also find Turtle Beach (Ngumuy) and Macassan Beach (Garanhan). If you're planning a visit to Arnhem Land, make sure you look into travel permits with the Northern Land Council or the Dhimurru Aboriginal Corporation before your trip 👍  Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Phoebe! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #ArnhemLand

Apparently almost 1 in 10 Aussies believe #EastArnhemLand is a fantasy destination from a children’s book... 🤦‍♂️ This is Lonely Beach, a very beautiful (and real!) place that you can explore on a tour with aboriginal-owned organisation @Lirrwi Tourism. They offer day and multi-day guided tours into the remote Yolngu Homelands, departing from #Nhulunbuy (#Gove) between April and October. You'll get to see how the world's oldest living culture still does things today - from traditional spear fishing to gathering of bush foods. East Arnhem Land is only a short flight from #Darwin or can be accessed via the Central Arnhem Road. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @_markfitz! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #ArnhemLand

You don’t hear the phrase “off the beaten track” so often these days but it’s the perfect description for Lonely Beach in #EastArnhemLand. @kyle_hunter and @haylsa visited this little known region with @Lirrwi Tourism, an aboriginal-owned company, who offer various touring into the remote Yolngu homelands. Departing from #Nhulunbuy (#Gove), you'll get to experience the world's oldest living culture first hand. You could be trying any number of activities from weaving to traditional spear fishing, gathering of bush foods and medicine, storytelling or learning how the Yidaki (didgeridoo) is made and played. The tours run over the dry season from April to October. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Kyle. #SeeAustralia #ArnhemLand #TourismTopEnd
