Explore our rock art

Injalak Arts Centre overlooks the breathtaking Injalak Hill, a superb sandstone monolith rich with traditional rock art and stories of the Indigenous people who have lived in the area for thousands of years.

Visitors travel to Gunbalanya from all over the world to visit Injalak Hill and experience its outstanding rock art galleries. With panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, Injalak Hill is a must-see during your visit to West Arnhem Land. Tours of the hill can be arranged through our partners.


Self drive to Gunbalanya

Lot 383, Gunbalanya NT 0822

Injalak is an easy 50 minute drive from Jabiru through stunning landscapes. Customers are welcome to visit us during the dry season if they have their own vehicles. The drive is spectacularly scenic and although a 4WD is recommended, the 17 km dirt road from Cahill’s Crossing to Gunbalanya can be driven in a conventional car. The turn-off to Gunbalanya (Oenpelli) is clearly marked. Once in Gunbalanya, drive to the T-intersection and turn right, Injalak is the only long building on the left.

Travelling by road to Gunbalanya from East Alligator Ranger Station requires crossing a river that is seasonal and also affected by tides. We suggest you check tide times for Cahill’s Crossing prior to arrival.


Permits to visit Gunbalanya for day the must be arranged in advance via Northern Land Council. The permit required is the Recreation Permit, and you can easily apply online here
