Access for travellers and freight is mainly by air or sea as roads to the region cross very difficult terrain. Mining production, including the alumina/bauxite production on the Gove Peninsula and manganese on Groote Eylandt, is the regions main economic activity. Other industries in East Arnhem include buffalo farming, aquaculture and fishing. Traditional Indigenous cultural experiences and the remote and natural wilderness attract many tourists to the region. About 62 per cent of the regions 14 400 population in 2006 were Indigenous. The regions population is relatively young and dispersed, with 48 per cent aged 24 years and under and less than 2 per cent aged 65 years and over.
