The Yolngu SonglinesAustralia, East Arnhem Land, Northern Territory

Northern Territory’s East Arnhem Land is home to the Yolngu people. This vast land has remained unchanged for more than 40,000 years and will touch you with its strong sense of tradition. With the guidance of Crooked Compass, you’ll be transported from signed tarmac roads into one of the most untouched areas of Australia.

Upon arrival to the Bawaka Homeland you’ll be welcomed by the Burarrwanga family and immersed into the Yolngu culture. Women will be guided through activities such as weaving, cooking, and crafts while spearfishing and didgeridoo making are available to the men. An exploratory hike to the cyan waters of Lonely Beach will bring home just how pristine this land is. By night, Dreamtime stories, passed down over generations, are told by a crackling fire. It’s an experience that will move you to your core.


The eight-day Following the Songlines tour starts from US$8650.
