Tour guide with a couple on tour with Arnhem Land Safaris

West Arnhem Land

There’s heaps to explore in West Arnhem Land including Garig Gunak Barlu National Park & Seven Spirit Bay, Injalak art centre, Mt Borradaile and more.

On the western side of Arnhem Land is Gunbalanya (Oenpelli). Gunbalanya is a large Aboriginal town situated about 60km north east of Jabiru, across the East Alligator River in Arnhem Land.

The area around Gunbalanya is known as Stone Country, a name inspired by the spectacular Arnhem Land escarpment and rock formations that emerge from the floodplains surrounding the town.

Call in to see artists at work and to buy baskets and paintings at the famous Injalak Art and Craft Centre. Join a tour led by an Aboriginal guide to Injalak Hill to see ancient rock art and hear Dreamtime stories, or join a bush tucker tour and learn how the Aboriginal people live from the land.
