History

This land owned by the Northern Lands Council.  It is of special importance to the Yolngu people and has at least 58 sacred sites in the area.   

Waṉuway has been used for thousands of years for ceremony and hunting. There is evidence also dating back to the Indonesian Macassan trades thought to have commenced over 400 years ago.

How to access?

Cape Arnhem is approximately 50 kilometres from Nhulunbuy along a maze of sandy tracks that starts after your turn off from the Central Arnhem Road. 

The track is four-wheel drive only, has a limited of 10 vehicles per day and no trailers are allowed.

For some of the track, you are unable to stop due to a registered Aboriginal Sacred Site however you receive this information when obtaining your permit. 

To access this area, in addition to your General Access permit from Dhimurru you will also need a Special Permit.  This additional permit costs $20 per day per vehicle and includes either your day access permit or camping. 

This can be obtained in person at the Dhimurru office online at  http://www.dhimurru.com.au/ .
