On northwest corner of Groote Eylandt. Groote Eylandt is around 650 km east of Darwin and 50 km off the Arnhem Land coast in Australia's Gulf of Carpentaria. It is Australia's third largest island. The island is approximately 60 km north south and 40 km east west. It contains a number of rivers and streams which may make travel throughout the island difficult.
On the island there is an 18km bitumen road from Alyangula to Angurugu (takes 20 minutes). Most other roads are dirt so a 4-wheel drive is essential.
