Much of the Thamarrurr Region is wilderness covering more than 5,000 square kilometres within the Daly River and Port Keats Aboriginal Land Trust. The coastal areas feature sandy beaches, mangrove swamps, wetlands, creeks and low hills; while inland the rivers carve courses through sandstone and support extensive tropical savanna woodland.
The Thamarrurr Rangers have been working in the area for six years and are based in the main township, Wadeye, one of the largest Indigenous towns in the Northern Territory.
