Borradaile and the surrounding sandstone hills are honeycombed with caves, once occupied by Aborigines who have lived in Arnhemland for more than 40,000 years.  Here you will see thousands of vivid, wonderfully well preserved rock paintings which chronicle the spiritual element and substance of everyday Aboriginal life. 
Mount Borradaile operates for 10 months of the year - Februray to November

More about Mount Borradaile Safari Camp

Mount Borradaile Safaris commenced operations in 1986 after the Davidson family successfully negotiated an exclusive lease to 700 square kilometres of pristine wilderness in north west Arnhemland with the traditional Aboriginal land owners.
A stay at Mount Borradaile represents the ultimate in exclusive wilderness expeditions, with a limited number of visitors permitted into the region each week.  Experienced guides will interpret the fabulous rock art for you and introduce you to the ecology of the area.  If birdwatching is your passion, you will love Mount Borradaile, a twitcher's paradise with over 200 species of birds. From the birds and crocodiles of the waterways to the creatures of the bush, this is surely one of the best places to see Australia's wildlife.

The lodge is also accessible by 4WD during the dry season (May-October). Drive time from Darwin is approximately 5 hours.
