Linguistic/cultural units in part of Arnhem Land

Arnhem Land is some 150 0002 km of the Top End of the Northern Territory. The Yolngu cultural bloc of central and eastern Arnhem Land is delineated by the area coloured yellow. The Blyth River approximates the western boundary with central  Arnhem Land (the Glyde River, which the Goyder runs into, is closer to the actual boundary), the headwaters of the Goyder River the southwestern boundary, and the Walker River the southern boundary. An area roughly 250 X 150 kilometres (37,500km2).

Arnhem region
Only some of the eastern portion of western Arnhem Land (that area west of the Liverpool River) is shown on this map.
