Daliwoi Bay (Permit Required)


3.8 from 6 users


The newly repaired track from the Central Arnhem Highway leads down to Binydjarrnga, a boat launching area and campsite with a view of Daliwuy Bay. Facilities here include composting toilets and tables. Sites are accessible by 4WD and suitable for tents and camper trailers. Good vehicle access provides opportunities to experience mangrove estuaries, mudflats, paperbark trees (Melaleuca) and other features of the inter-tidal zone. The mangroves form a dense forest that extends over a large area of tidal mudflats and sand flats. A thin belt of coastal monsoon rainforest that grows on low sandy ridges running parallel to the shoreline merges with nearby open eucalypt forest. Anyone wanting to visit this recreational area must obtain a General Permit from Dhimurru before they go. Permit applications can be made online or by contacting the Dhimurru office on (08) 8939 2700 or permits@dhimurru.com.au.

We spent the month of June @ site no1. A fabulous flat spot with a great water view. We had boat which was very easy to launch, didn't catch a lot of fish but enough to keep us feed. Plenty of shark took out gear, saw a manta ray every day, dolphins & only a couple of crocs. Insects weren't too bad, only worried about them early morning/evening. Plenty of fire wood available, toilets weren't too bad. Had plenty of locals come down fishing or spearing stingray which gave us plenty of opportunity for great conversations & learnt so much from them. We absolutely loved this spot, one of the cleanest beaches in the area.



Oh what an awesome spot It is a flat, easily accessed campsite with the bay right at your doorstep. We had a boat and found that the fishing in the bay wasn't fantastic but there was plenty of fish out on the close reefs which were only a couple of kays offshore. Don't need marks, just sound around. The Sandflies were very friendly as were the crocs. The woman in the local government office in town told us that they release all their captured crocs out there. My only criticism is that they should improve the drop pit toilet considering they charge for the camping here.



Great spot! Spent 3 nights. Favourite in Arnhem Land. Crocs, dolphins, lots of fish. Great fishing and boat ramp. Drop toilet.
