Davidson’s Arnhemland Safaris

Explore the Mt Borradaile region, located in Arnhem Land. Small groups can travel in from either Darwin or Jabiru. Activities include visiting Aboriginal rock art galleries, getting close to crocodiles, watching brolgas dance or simply wandering through a superb pristine wilderness.

The Mt Borradaile area is Aboriginal land, where previously there was no public access. In the 1980s, with the blessing of the traditional owners, Max and Philippa Davidson set up a safari camp and air strip. The emphasis is on conservation of the cultural and natural environment.
