The East Arnhem region has a history of trade and entrepreneurship, and is connected with national and international markets. Situated to the east of Darwin, the Northern Territory’s capital, East Arnhem is connected to markets across the Territory and in South East Asia. Gove Airport, 15 kilometres from Nhulunbuy, receives daily services from Cairns and Darwin. The Gove Peninsula also provides the only deep-water port between Darwin and Cairns, which has regular cargo services.
The East Arnhem region is an inviting prospect for investors looking for unique opportunities. Government and business leaders are strongly committed to working with investors to help new economic activities establish and thrive. Existing entrepreneurs and Aboriginal landowners are increasingly looking for partners to develop new businesses and income-generating enterprises.

On the Gove Peninsula, Nhulunbuy is making a successful transition from a mining town into a regional town, as a result of entrepreneurial businesses and regionalisation of services. Across the region, innovative Yolŋu-led economic and community development initiatives are promoting employment, capability and empowerment.
To support existing and emerging businesses in the region, DEAL provides access to information, networks, services and capital.
