Nhulunbuy is located in north east Arnhem Land where the Gulf of Carpentaria meets the Arafura Sea. The climate in Arhhem Land is tropical, with two distinct seasons: the wet and the dry. The area is great for fishing and it is argued that this area offers some of the best fishing and oldest Aboriginal rock art in the world.
