The entire Cobourg Peninsula lies within the Garig Gunak Barlu National Park in northern Arnhem Land. This is a remote and rugged paradise fringed with white sandy beaches and rich marine life. Access is via air, sea or an unsealed road (four-wheel drive only) through Arnhem Land that is usually open in the dry season (May-September), depending on the rains, and a park permit is required and you will need a permit to camp at Garig Gunak Barlu National Park. You must pay your camping fees at least six weeks before you travel to the park.

This Place marker is a generic location on the Peninsula and should not be used for navigation. See specific sites for camping, points of interest etc by referring to the list of "Nearby Places" or browsing the map for other markers.

Cahills Crossing to Smith Point, 560km return. Four to five hours driving time.
Moderate difficulty with numerous creek crossings that can vary in depth (use depth markers). Expect dust, corrugation and slippery bends. Take a high-clearance 4X4 with two spares. Tents and camper-trailers only; no caravans. Permit required. You must check in with the ranger upon arrival at Black Point.

See Garig Gunak Barlu National Park for more details.
