Information

Garig Gunak Barlu National Park, formerly known as Gurig National Park and Coburg Marine Park. The park includes the entire peninsula, the surrounding waters of the Arafura Sea and Van Diemen Gulf, as well as some of the neighbouring islands. So bring a boat, and enjoy all aspects of the park including the fishing.
The Park can be normally accessed by road (4WD only) during the dry season only (normally May - October). The Park can also be accessed by air charter, with an airstrip at Smith Point. However, it must be remembered that the airstrip is 2 km from the camp ground and no public transport is available. Alternative access is by sea - 150 nautical miles from Darwin, with coral reefs and a scenic anchorage. The best time to visit: August - October when the moderating east to south-east winds are normally prevalent.

Remember, permits are required and are available from:

Adjacent to the Ranger Station is a cultural centre displaying the cultural history of the area. There are wetland walks, scenic views, and the ruins of Victoria Settlement (accessible by boat or commercial tour).
