TOUR UPDATE: At this present point in time no tour operators are permitted to visit the Gunbalanya community and thus the Injalak Arts Centre, due to Covid concerns. That includes our company, which is owned by the Traditional Owners of the land on which we our touring products operate.
Access to the Gunbalanya community will again be restricted for commercial tour operators in 2022 until the whole community reaches and vaccination rate of 80%. Apparently, the rate is currently sitting on 71%. So, we cannot guarantee access to Injalak Arts Centre in Gunbalanya on this tour. We have however assisted the Injalak Arts Centre to again set up a retail outlet at Border Store in 2022. They are expecting to open this outlet by the 6th May 2022. The tour will be dropping into this Injalak Arts outlet for clients.
Until more sites dry out in Arnhem Land the Arnhemlander Tour will be also visiting the Cannon Hill regions on the northern Kakadu. It is an otherwise restricted area of Kakadu and has significant rock art sites and incredible landscapes.
