Immerse yourself in the culture of the Yolngu community on a remote Yolngu homeland in East Arnhem Land on this five day tour. Learn about Yolngu kinship, traditional lore and language, take part in daily cultural activities and cross a number of incredible landscapes along the way.
Become part of a small Yolngu community tucked-away in East Arnhem Land on this eye-opening five day tour. The tour begins with a pick up from either Nhulunbuy or Gove Airport, followed by a transfer to a remote Yolngu homeland. Over the tour, you will take part in a variety of cultural activities with the traditional owners of the region. Activites could include weaving, traditional spear-fishing, gathering of bush foods and medicine, dance (Bunggul), storytelling or learning how the Yidaki (didjeridu) is made and played. You'll also learn about Yolngu kinship, traditional lore and language, both spoken and sign and meander through magnificent landscapes. By the end of the tour, you'll have a deeper understanding of Yolngu culture and their connection to land and sea. As the itinerary is not rigid to reflect the unstructured Yolngu daily life, expect the unexpected!
COVID-19 Safety For 2022 tours, all adult customers must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to travel. You must have completed all doses of your vaccine and allowed enough time to be fully inoculated. You will also need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test, prior to joining a tour with us. To protect our vulnerable Yolngu communities, this is a requirement even if you have been fully vaccinated. You will be required to show proof of your vaccination status, and your negative COVID-19 test result to our tour leader on the first day of your tour.
Once this experience has been confirmed, changes are at the discretion of the experience provider and are arranged with them directly according to this policy:
Minimum of 6 and a maximum of 14 participants.
Weather and seasons can affect which activities can be undertaken.
Yolngu women dress conservatively and we ask that you do the same. Long skirts, long shorts or pants/trousers are suitable, as are t-shirts and knee length shorts. Please do not wear bikinis, mini-skirts or shorts that show butt-cheeks. Wear cool, comfortable clothing that will protect you from the sun and insects. A good pair of walking shoes is recommended, and possibly a pair that you don't mind getting wet as there may be times that you will walk through water, or along rocky outcrops along the waters edge. A sweatshirt or a long-sleeved windbreaker for cooler nights and mornings is recommended. Please try to keep your luggage to maximum of 10kg preferably in a soft suitcase of aircraft hand luggage size.
The tour itinerary is not set in stone. The aim of the tour is to participate in the unstructured and less regimented Yol?u daily life. Each Yolngu homeland offers a slightly different experience, and each time we visit we may be hosted by different family members. Your Yolngu hosts will lead each day's activities, and activities will vary depending on the season and availability of materials.
This experience takes place in East Arnhem Land, NT.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
