Roy Marika Lookout (Malpi)

Roy (Malpi) Marika Lookout is located at Nhulun, the hill in the centre of the Nhulunbuy township.

From the lookout tower you can take in panoramic views of Gayngaru Wetlands, Gove Harbour, and the township. Enjoy the spectacular views of the unspoiled coastline, view native flora and watch for the many beautiful birds that frequent the area.

Interpretive signage provides a brief history of the region, and tells the story of the creation ancestor that once walked through this land, and how the Yolngu now manage their land and sea after a long struggle for land rights.

To enjoy this lookout travellers must enter Arnhem Land. A permit must be obtained prior to visiting the area. Please contact Dhimurru Aboriginal Corporation for more information.
