Liya Wanhurr Aboriginal Corporation is a newly established Aboriginal owned and operated company that offers tours to Dhalinybuy homeland in East Arnhem Land.
Yolŋu (the traditional custodians of East Arnhem Land) life and culture remains intrinsically connected with the surrounding environment meaning each tour will be uniquely customised to the environmental conditions and the six seasons that make up the Yolŋu calendar.
While no tour is the same, highlights may include experiencing buŋgul (Yolŋu dance and ceremony), learning new skills such as weaving and spear making, exploring the food and medicine resources of the Country, and visiting off the beaten track locations that many residents of East Arnhem don’t even know about!
The Liya Wanhurr Day Tour is a self catered, cultural experience starting at Dhalinybuy community in remote East Arnhem Land, Northern Territory.
Guests drive to Dhalinybuy where they are welcomed by the local community through an elaborate traditional dance (buŋgul). Over the course of the tour, guests learn more about the homeland and the surrounding area, Yolŋu life, history and culture and develop skills such as spear making and pandanus weaving.
Each tour is tailored to the environment and the time of year, meaning no tour is ever the same.
Guests looking to extend their stay have the opportunity to book a campsite at the nearby Cato River Recreational Area which is a well established campground with shelters, fire pits and basic toilet facilities.
