Environment

One of the best things about a visit to Groote Eylandt is being immersed in its diverse and quite unique environment.

In this small area, pristine beaches, rugged sandstone plateaus, open woodland, monsoon vine forests, riparian woodlands, paperbark swamps and red sand hills that roll into the sea all exist side by side.

Surrounding the island in the aqua waters of the Gulf of Carpentaria is an equally special marine environment with complex reef systems that support an abundance of fish and other marine species.

There are so many ways to experience the island’s different environments:
