Groote Eylandt guide

Located in the Northern Territory, Groote Eylandt is the largest island in the Gulf of Carpentaria and is owned by the Anindilyakwa people. To visit, a permit from the Anindilyakwa Land Council is mandatory. The landscape consists of light woodland savannah country fringed by mangroves on the coast. One of the main attractions of Groote Eylandt is its fantastic fishing opportunities, making it a premier game fishing destination. For those interested in cultural experiences, the Groote Eylandt Lodge provides a unique opportunity to immerse in the lifestyle and hospitality of the traditional landowners. The island also offers a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle, with its relaxed and friendly tropical atmosphere. In addition to fishing and cultural experiences, visitors can explore the island's unique natural beauty and wildlife. While facilities for visitors are limited, safaris can be organized for anglers, and accommodation is available at the Groote Eylandt Lodge. The island's roads lead to the mine, which has been in operation since 1966 and produces a quarter of the world's manganese. The island's newly appointed tourism coordinator emphasizes that there is much more to do on the island beyond fishing. From world-class fishing to unique cultural experiences, Groote Eylandt offers a truly unforgettable travel experience.
