West Arnhem Land with Crooked Compass

August 3, 2021 Travel Deals No Comments

Access remote, wild reaches of Australia and venture into iconic national parks on this new Crooked Compass itinerary that entwines ancient culture and nature. With a strong focus on Indigenous experiences, enjoy a rare privilege to be immersed in one of Australia’s most culturally intact Aboriginal nations and gain limited access to heavily restricted sites.

Head ‘out bush’ with the local Jawoyn ladies to learn about bush medicine, foraging and bush tucker. Search for Sugarbag, the honey from native bees, and make traditional baskets weaved from pandanus and coloured with natural bush dyes.

Visit Edith Falls in Nitmiluk National Park, with spectacular photo and swimming opportunities in a beautifully secluded waterfall plunge pool. Take a dip at the Katherine Hot Springs, a natural thermal spring along the banks of the Katherine River, and explore the dramatic waterfalls and rock formations of Katherine Gorge by canoe.

Visit both iconic and lesser-known sites in Kakadu National Park. Swim at the Moline Rockhole, where only a few select operators are permitted access. Visit Gunlom Falls, a highlight of Kakadu with its cascading waters and crystal clear plunge pool, and climb to the rock pools above for a naturally occurring ‘infinity pool’ and sweeping views across Kakadu. Hike to one of Kakadu’s lesser-known sites, Barramundi Gorge, also known as Maguk.

Continue north to Nourlangie Rock, one of Kakadu’s oldest Aboriginal occupation sights. Here you’ll find some of the world’s oldest and most impressive rock art. This famous site documents life in the region from 20,000 years ago to the first contact with European explorers.

Discover the artistic traditions of the regions with visits to the Godinymayin Yijard Rivers Arts & Culture Centre in Katherine, a gallery that showcases works from both Indigenous and non-Indigenous perspectives; and the Injalak Arts and Crafts Centre, with more than 200 artists and weavers from Gunbalanya and surrounding outstations producing quality art displayed in galleries around the world.

Priced from $7,199, the 6-day itinerary departs 25 May, 25 July and 27 August, 2022. Tour includes a round trip to Darwin, five nights’ accommodation, professional guide, luxury 4WD vehicle, meals as per the itinerary, and all National Park and Arnhem Land permits and entry fees.
