Welcome

West Arnhem Regional Council’s borders encompass some 50,000 square kilometres of spectacular outback landscape at the very top of the Top End. The jewel in our crown, the World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park, sets us apart as one of the most culturally important and environmentally significant corners of the Northern Territory. From remote islands and pristine beaches, to the vast floodplains and dramatic escarpments, our towns, communities and outstations are as diverse as the country around them.
