Hop on a day tour to Arnhem Land
Today, immerse yourself in the culture of the region and join a one-day Arnhemland Aboriginal Culture Adventure tour. Led by a local Aboriginal guide, you'll get to explore ancient rock art on Injalak Hill and have the opportunity to visit the Injalak Art Centre.
The centre is a source for high calibre Aboriginal art, all made locally. You may also be able to see the artists at work, and watch local women weaving pandanus baskets. All permits and royalties to enter Arnhem Land are included on an approved tour.
Or get a permit and explore on your own
You can visit the Injalak Art Centre without being on an approved tour, however please be mindful that you will need to apply for a permit prior to your visit through the Northern Land Council. Alternatively you can apply for permits at the NLC office in Jabiru, however, just make sure you have some time up your sleeve, as the permit can take a couple of days to be approved.
Take advantage of free Dry Season activities
If you are travelling during the dry, make the most of the seasonal ranger program and get involved with over 40 free activities per week to choose from, such as cultural demonstrations, guided walks, night time slideshows and rock art presentations.
Experience a famous Ubirr sunset
The late afternoon guided walk at Ubirr, one of Kakadu’s most visited sites is a must-do. The local guide will explain the meanings of the ancient indigenous rock art and you’ll finish the tour on top of Ubirr in time for a stunning sunset and memorable views across the floodplains.
Grab a bite on the way back
On the way home, grab a bite to eat from the Border Store, which is well known for its delicious food and friendly service.
