Arnhem Land 4WD Tours (20 days)


Great Divide Tours has spent a great deal of time in Arnhem Land arranging access to some of the most beautiful and remote areas along with various local communities who wish to share their world with you. We have pioneered tag-along tours into some of these regions and this tour is highly sought after often booking out well in advance. Very few other tour operators offer tours in Arnhem Land or can match the history of doing so. The feedback from our tours has confirmed that we are offering something truly unique and special.

We will visit both West and East Arnhem Land with overnight stays in various communities allowing us to see first hand their culture and way of life. This is combined with seeing the unique landscape and wildlife of Arnhem Land, wild buffalo, turtle tracks on pristine beaches and yes, even crocodiles in their own habitat. This trip has it all. With over 14 years visiting Arnhem Land and working with the local people to bring you a unique experience, this is a trip of a lifetime into an area few venture.

"Hi Vic,

The Arnhemland tour was the best 4WD trip we have done. The cultural experience visiting the local communities in Eastern Arnhem land was a major highlight. The visits to sacred sites, traditional fishing, weaving and cooking demonstrations certainly added to the tour.

Who could forget the evening when us men were invited to join in the traditional dancing. We enjoyed the fantastic beach camp sites on the Coburg Peninsula and East Arnhem Land.

Counting the crocodile slides on the beach in the morning at the Coburg Peninsula camp was interesting. The beach driving is good as anywhere you will find in Australia. The day drive along the beach of Cape Arnhem is rembered for the fantastic scenery and and challenging sand driving. The sighting of numerous buffaloes and magnificent bird life in the wild added to the tour.

However, it was the crocodiles that everybody came to see and there was plenty of them, big and bigger. The Kakadu National Park tour was also very interesting with the Yellow Waters and the Jumping Crocodile tours were highlights. As usual, the detailed planning and realistic schedules and safety measures made for a very enjoyable tour.

"Hi Vic

Jan and I wanted to thank you for just the most fantastic Arnhem Land tour in August. We both had a great time and loved every minute of it. Reflecting on our time away it was the combination of experiences that made the tour so special. We saw amazing outback Australian landscapes, a huge variety of native flora and fauna all capped off with open and warm exchanges with the local people. As a result each day was both unique and special. How many times did we say to you at days end...well that was a great day Vic Thanks to you and Tony for being excellent guides, fine hosts and good story tellers.

All the best and safe travels.

Greg and Jan Goodsell"
