Guwatjurumurru (Giddy River) is approximately a 55 kilometre drive from Nhulunbuy. After turning off the Central Arnhem Road, the dirt track will take you over small creek crossings and through open bushland before arriving at the recreational areas.

The track provides access to the western side of the river where you can view the beautiful waterholes, small cascading waterfalls and mini gorges. The natural beauty here is spectacular with an area of the river re-entering into the main flow over a small cascade. Downstream there is a small but impressive waterfall running into a large open river section with stunning views from the closely located campsite.

Guwatjurumurru is one of the more secluded and peaceful options in the region to camp or spend a day. There are camping areas with picnic tables and fire pits located on both sides of the river and they are within walking distance to the water.

During the monsoonal season Dhimurru Aboriginal Corporation will sometimes close the area to limit environmental damage to the track and recreational areas due to excess rain and vehicle traffic.
