Gululu bukmak Bawakalili
Welcome everyone to Bawaka
Bawaka now offers many options to experience this internationally acclaimed heavenly place named by the Macassan traders well before Captain James Cook “discovered” Australia. It means Unknown Heaven in their language, and today, there are many reminders of their centuries-old trading relationship with the Yolngu Burarrwanga family at Bawaka.
Bawaka is located 55 kilometres from Nhulunbuy, approximately a one-hour drive on the shores of Port Bradshaw, on the Gove Peninsula in Eastern Arnhem Land.
You can book a Visit to Bawaka and enjoy the extensive pearly white sand, azure blue water, great sunsets, and exceptional wildlife sitings for the day. While here, book a tour of the famous NT Lonely Beach. Or book a relaxing, picturesque beachfront cabin accommodation or campsite stay for a while.
Bawaka also offers the world-famous life-changing Bawaka Cultural Experience on weekends only. Or at other times for large corporations, colleges, or other private groups through special bookings.
Bawaka is changing its business model to allow the Burarrwanga family to be more in control of their business. As part of that, we are in the middle of setting up a new Online booking system.
So please see the information under TOURS if you want to book a “Visit to Bawaka”, book Cabin Accommodation, Camp or Visit Lonely Beach or organise a Cultural Experience.
