NOTE: YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO PROVIDE PROOF OF A RECENT NEGATIVE COVID TEST TO ATTEND THIS TOUR.

This tour has been designed for the more independent traveller and has all the makings of a genuine adventure in culture, visiting different remote Yolŋu homelands. Not only will you participate in a variety of cultural programs and activities, but you will cross a diversity of incredible landscapes during the tour.

This tour also  provides an opportunity for Yolŋu on remote homelands to share their culture with visitors and provides an economic base for them to be able to remain on country and maintain their culture. Tourism of this kind, which is developed by Yolŋu for Yolŋu allows for multiple generations of family members to participate

Lirrwi Tourism works in consultation with many homelands to ensure that all have the opportunity to participate, learn and earn from tourism. A detailed itinerary will be provided well before the departure date. Most
importantly, this means that tourism does not dominate the cultural life of homelands because it allows them flexibility for cultural commitments.
