Join renowned artist Idris Murphy for a painting adventure and wilderness experience in the Top End. A land of stark beauty, sacred aboriginal sites and remote wilderness areas, the Northern Territory has always stood apart from the rest of Australia. Arnhem Land is the ultimate Australian wilderness experience, with its natural treasure trove of billabongs, wetlands, rainforests, wildlife and ancient escarpments and an important spiritual home for the local indigenous people who live there. This is a rare opportunity to experience a wild part of Australia, while learning from a master of Australian landscape painting.
