Terra di Arnhem orientale

Ritiri esotici dell'isola, siti storici, battute di pesca charter, esperienze culturali o semplicemente relax a bordo piscina.

Trovati in paradiso: l'East Arnhem Land è bello e vario, con coste remote e frastagliate e spiagge di sabbia bianca. Questa vasta area di quasi 100.000 kmq di terra è una delle ultime roccaforti australiane della cultura tradizionale aborigena.

Ci sono molte attività e cose da vedere e da fare a livello locale, quindi assicurati di trascorrere del tempo per viverle tutte.

Fai una passeggiata mattutina lungo la spiaggia con vista sullo scintillante Mare di Arafura, impara dalla gente del posto e partecipa a un tour culturale Yolngu, visita alcuni dei centri d'arte e artigianato, prendi parte a un percorso a piedi interpretativo e lancia una lenza pescando: il tuo il pescato del giorno può essere preparato in uno dei ristoranti locali per il pasto serale, non puoi essere molto più fresco di così.
