Arnhem Land is huge... Where do you want to go? Kakadu is also part of Arnhem Land. Suggest you do some "google" search first... Kakadu and or Coburg Peninsular, Katherine, and heaps of other places... So your questions need to be more specific.

Hi Scout - check out the Permits section here for what is required to visit the Aboriginal Lands of Arnhem Land. Permits are required.

Hi Scout,

The answer is yes, two of these include Coburg Penninsula and through to Nullumbuy in east Arnehm Land. The later is a two day 700 km trip each way and both require advance permits. On reaching Nuhumbuy you are required to register for a visitors permit (about $20 a week) which gives you access to some areas. As well some camping places have to be booked and paid for on top of this charge. Warning don't go during the school holidays as the local mining families use the camping areas extensively. It is well worth the trip but a week is too short. The permit section of this forum will provide details. I have previously written a blog re this destination if you are interested. "Darwin via the Dirt" - Part ? Nullumbuy. Application was easy.

Its many years since we have been to Coburg Pen. But back then (2001) it cost us $235 for permit and NP camping (all in one) for a week (max time allowed). They limited the number of vehicles in at any one time. Don't know the current situation.

Regards,

Mike.
