Yilan ('yi-lan') is an outstation, about 50 km (30 mi) by air to the east of Maningrida, Arnhem Land, Northern Territory, Australia.

An outstation is an autonomous Indigenous community at some distance from services and supplies.

Yilan is on the coast, near the mouth of the Blyth River and consists of about 6 houses belonging to Burarra
family groups, and one solar-powered public phone.

The people who live at Yilan from the Wurdeja, Ji-malawa and Yilan communities, rely on getting their supplies from Maningrida to the west or Millingimbi ('mill-in-gim-bee') to the east.
