Overview

Baṉambarrŋa (Rainbow Cliffs) is a short 10 kilometre or 20 minute drive from Nhulunbuy with the turn off located on the way to Gove Airport. Once you have turned off the main road the track in to the recreational area is a well maintained dirt road with a small creek crossing.

Baṉambarrŋa is a sheer section of coastline where the exposed and weathered rock profile produces a striking colourful effect on the cliff face as it plunges over 40 meters into the sea, giving it the nick name Rainbow Cliffs. Open forest runs to the top of the cliff and a small tidal creek winds through a mangrove community to spill into the sea at its western end, where there is easy access to a sandy beach. The top of the cliff is a Sacred Site and access is not permitted.

Follow the road to the eastern side of the cliffs to see a spectacular view from the laterite shelf adjacent to the cliff base. The western side of the track leads to a small cliff that looks out over the ocean and provides access to the beach. It is here you will find campsites boasting a spectacular view with picnic tables and a composting toilet.
