Mt BorradaileAgainst the remote Arnhem Land escarpment, Mount Borradaile is a sacred Aboriginal site that welcomes visitors to explore its riches of rugged ranges, idyllic floodplains, pristine wilderness and cultural treasures.
Come and share the wonders of Mt Borradaile, the lily-covered billabongs and waterways teeming with birds, crocodiles and barramundi. The adjacent escarpment hides quality Aboriginal rock art in old habitation caves and shelters, where the history of the region is vividly depicted in ochre paintings. Elegant hunting figures with spears and boomerangs illustrate life up to 50,000 years ago, while vibrant spirit figures and ships show the evolution of the world's oldest continuing living culture. The newly rebuilt safari lodge melts into the surrounding bush, with ensuite cabins built to embrace the top end climate. Deluxe ensuite cabins provide a few more luxuries for those who enjoy a little spoiling. The central hub overlooks the pool and offers cold beers, wines and spirits at the bar for guests to enjoy in the lounge area or the poolside deck after an exhilarating day. Davidson's Arnhemland Safaris is located on a 700-kilometre square exclusive lease in northwest Arnhemland, only 50 minutes by light plane from Darwin. Mt Borradaile is a registered Aboriginal sacred site, a uniquely spectacular and culturally significant place entrusted by the traditional owners to Max Davidson and his highly trained guides to share with small groups of visitors.
