Goulburn Islands

infoGoulburn Island Info

The North and South Goulburn Islands located in Auray Bay off the northern Arnhem Land coast. The islands are Aboriginal-owned, so permits from the Northern Land Council are essential for all visitors. The Goulburn Islands are not set up for tourism, but intrepid sailors and fisherman may occasionally find themselves on their shores.

The Warruwi people are the traditional owners of the Goulburn Islands, and the Warruwi community is located on the southern tip of the south island. Warruwi is a dry community (no alcohol) and fishing is the main pastime of local people, who are allowed to hunt the turtles and dugong prevalent in the area.
