The Arnhem Land Region is one of the five regions of the Northern Territory of Australia. It is located in the north-eastern corner of the territory and is around 500 km from the territory capital Darwin. The region has an area of 97,000 km² which also covers the area of Kakadu National Park, and a population of 16,230. The explorer Matthew Flinders named the region after the Dutch ship Arnhem, which was used to explore the coast in 1623. The ship was named after the city of Arnhem in the Netherlands.
