Rainbow Serpent, ArnhemlandOne of Australia’s most powerful cultural sites is at Mount Borradaile where thousands of rock paintings chronicle everyday Aboriginal beliefs: the Rainbow Serpent painting found here is one of the most potent spiritual symbols of Aboriginal Dreamtime.

Another area rich in art is the remote Oenpelli region at Injalak Hill where you can see Aboriginal artists at work.

Wildlife and visiting

Wildlife abounds, with colorful jacana (Jesus-bird) walking daintily on the lily pads in billabongs, goannas and frill-necked lizards. Access to Arnhem Land is restricted by decree of the traditional landowners and only selected guides who have earned their trust may bring visitors.
