Gunbalanya - West Arnhem Land

Travel by helicopter to Gunbalanya (also known as Oenpelli), a small community in West Arnhem Land.

A truly magical location with spectacular landscapes and timeless culture.

Here, Traditional art can be purchased direct from artists and guests begin their must do tour to 'Injalak Hill' - a superb sandstone monolith home to outstanding ancient rock art galleries.
