“Go trekking, birdwatching, walking, fishing, boating, and photographing through the remote and rugged park with its magnificent white sandy beaches.”

At the very top of the Northern Territory in Arnhem Land, the Garig Gunak Barlu National Park is remote and rugged, fringed with magnificent white sand beaches on the Cobourg Peninsula. The national park is perfect for trekking, birdwatching, walking, fishing, boating and photography. This extensive park includes the entire Peninsula, the surrounding waters of the Arafura Sea and Van Diemen Gulf, and some of the neighbouring islands. Discover a mosaic of sandy beaches, dunes and associated coastal grasslands, mangroves, rainforest patches, swamps, lagoons, coral reefs, sea grass meadows and rich marine life in this 4,500 square kilometre paradise. Stop in at Black Point Cultural Centre to see the display of Aboriginal, Macassan and European histories of the area. Pitch a tent at one of two camping grounds. Anglers can try their luck for the common local species of mackerel, queenfish, trevally, shark, snapper and a variety of reef fish. Don't miss exploring the eerie ruins of the failed Victoria Settlement (accessible only by boat). 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.
