Wa?uwuy (Cape Arnhem) is a breathtakingly beautiful and pristine peninsula on the eastern tip of East Arnhem Land. The 50 kilometre drive from Nhulunbuy to Wa?uwuy takes you on a wonderful journey along an escarpment, over sand dunes and along pristine stretches of beach.The first half of the trip to Wa?uwuy will take you along the top of an escarpment, providing spectacular views across the surrounding areas. You will then reach a gate at the top of the escarpment. Before heading down the escarpment, be sure to check out the lookout here that gives you a magnificent uninterrupted view of the peninsula! The track will then take you down a steep hill and at the bottom it is recommended you let down your tyre pressure as the rest of the way you will be travelling on soft sand. There is a sign informing you of the recommended tyre pressure, along with a clearing to assist you to pull over and safely do so.The peninsula is characterised by broad white sandy beaches and extensive dune fields bounded by unusually clear seas and mangrove-fringed tidal inlets. A dominant landscape feature of the peninsula area of Manydjarrarrnga-Wa?uwuy is the wind formed Quaternary dune system, which rises to some 60 metres in places. Other geological formations included undifferentiated marine silts in the upper reaches of Daliwuy Bay, as well as Bradshaw granite outcrops which form localised yet distinctive habitats at several locations in the dune fields, on the offshore islets, and in Daliwuy Bay itself.There are several camping areas located at the north eastern end of the peninsula with picnic tables and fire pits for use. There is one composting toilet facility available on the track in between the camping areas. There is a ten-vehicle maximum limit per day for this area.
