Located in northeast Arnhem Land in Australia’s Northern Territory, Nhulunbuy is a settlement of 3500 people in the Gove Peninsula, the heartland of the Yolngu Indigenous people for the past 40,000 years.

Although this industry has declined in the past few years, the new Arnhem Space Centre, a satellite launch facility, is taking the area in a new and exciting direction.
