Information

Njumuy (Turtle Beach) is located about 40 kilometres from Nhulunbuy and is a favourite of many locals. The access track is dirt with some sand that winds through a patch of retja (coastal monsoon vine forest) to the white sands and blue waters of this hidden little cove. Track conditions are generally good, though rocky and sandy in parts.

A small camping area with picnic tables is set back in lush tropical vegetation giving plenty of shade during the day and with a lovely view of the beach just 20 meters away. Walking tracks to Bari?ura (Little Bondi) and Garanhan (Macassan Beach) form an onward coastal walking trail where you will get to take in some breathtaking scenery.

There is a composting toilet facility located on the track just before you get to the camping areas. Caution should be taken in the water near the rocks here as strong rips sometimes occur.

A Visitor Access Permit from Dhimurru Aboriginal Corporation is required to visit this area, as is a Camping Permit if camping overnight. Both permits are available from the website above. A small fee is charged for camping.
4WD vehicle is required. Road conditions will require driving on soft sand so recovery gear is recommended.
Neither potable water nor phone reception is available at this location
