Later, we’ll join the Guluyambi Cruise on the East Alligator River where an Aboriginal guide will provide insights into their culture and local mythology, the river’s abundant food chain, and we’ll learn about bush survival skills. With special permission of the local people, you can go ashore in Arnhem Land.
