Visited to also do the cultural tour. We had a great time. The rooms are well thought through & comfortable. The tour of the arts centre was also worthwhile. It was good to meet local people & elders, and see their art.

I stayed here with my daughter as part of a bespoke Venture North Safari, travelling through Beswick, Nitmiluk, Kakadu and the Cobourg Peninsula. I was really glad that I came here! By way of explanation, the Pavilions are a fairly recent add on to the local art centre.The centre has a small museum displaying paintings and craftwork. There is an espresso machine that does the best cup of coffee for miles. At one point the pavilions ran like a boutique bed and breakfast.This era has passed. Most people who stay are helping or working in the community. What is on offer in 2019 is a super clean, well designed bright and airy bedroom, with fresh sheets, plus the use of a shared kitchen, shower and toilet block. The Pavilions are literally situated in the heart of the community and it is fascinating to talk to local artists as they work on paintings, carvings, silk screen prints and baskets in the shade. I'm not sure there are many (any?) opportunities to stay in an aboriginal community in Australia. We went on a number of trips hosted by the local community. Thanks go to Rita and Daryl in particular for guiding us. One day we went looking for wild honey. Another day we harvested pandanus palm for baskets and dug up tree roots for yellow dye. We also went up to the waterfalls and pools above Beswick for a swim. Both my daughter and I loved our time here and our stay gave us a unique insight into life in this remote part of Australia.

While we enjoyed a pleasant stay down the road at Barunga we made sure we did a morning visit to the Djakanimba Pavilions for a look. We were given a tour of the facilities and visited the art gallery and gift store. Thank you to the lovely women who looked after us and made a lovely cuppa for the trip back to Darwin. Thank you to the beautiful people of the Beswick and Barunga communities who made us welcome.
