Arnhem Land Stone Country

Stock Photography By David C Hancock

The Arnhem Land plateau which makes up the eastern border of Kakadu National Park and extends down to Nitmiluk National Park, is a rugged and inhospitable area that is full of wonderful rock art and natural landscapes. Each year in the wet season, billions of litres of water runs off this scoured landscape to form many large rivers, such as the South and East Alligator, Liverpool, Katherine and Roper. Indigenous people have lived in this region for thousands of years.
