Dhamitjinya and Galaru

Dhamitjinya (East Woody Island) and Galaru (East Woody Beach) are pristine, popular coastal areas in north-east Arnhem Land.

Located just three kilometres from Nhulunbuy, these pristine beaches are spectacular for their great length and their clear azure waters.
You will need a permit from Dhimurru to access these areas. The recreation areas managed by Dhimurru include sandy white beaches and rugged coastline, expanses of open forests and shaded inland waterways. There are opportunities for fishing, boating, camping, walking and exploring the diverse vegetation and landscape. Recreation destinations are signposted.

As access can be affected due to high tides, please check with Dhimurru Aboriginal Corporation for details. Travellers must also obtain a recreation permit from Dhimurru prior to visiting the area.
