Overview

Top End Day Tours runs the one-day Arnhem Land Day Tour (formerly run by Lords) and is the only tour operator in the NT to run day tours from Darwin to Arnhem Land. For many, this tour is a once in a lifetime experience and opportunity to interact and learn about the oldest living culture in the world with local Aboriginal history. We visit and climb Injalak Hill which has some of western Arnhem Land’s most amazing rock art sites. We visit Injalak Art & Craft Centre where guests have the opportunity to browse or purchase goods from this non-profit Aboriginal organisation and watch local Aboriginal people painting and weaving pandanus baskets. With its stunning scenery of billabongs, birds, escarpment, Arnhem Land is truly a place where you can escape and experience this unique untouched haven of the Northern Territory. Tour includes all permits, Aboriginal guide, lunch and snacks.
