Some lovely rock art and lots of free guided walks. The art is easily accessible but you do need to climb upend down some rock steps. It is very shaded so was very comfortable. Good descriptions so we didn't use the guides as the groups were quite large.

Great outdoor rock art on this trail to the top where views are just awesome. Nothing to dislike, it is a relatively easy walk with well made paths that start and finish in the carpark.

Nourlangie is one of the two main stops for tour busses so it can get crowded and noisy. Its an easy walk even up to the lookout, and well worth the visit.

How awesome it is to be in the presence of Australia's great cultural artifacts in their natural and unaffected surrounds. No fees, no guards. Just an overwhelming historical reality.

Wow, that is the only word to describe this great collection of rock art.This is a very popular destination but is set up to cope with it with a big car park, toilet facilities and welll defined paths. Having said this it is worth hanging around to get some solitude at the various sites, it is a very spiritual place... More

I thoroughly enjoyed visiting Nourlangie. The views to the escarpment were great, the rock art was sensational and some of the short walks were really interesting. This is a very accessible place with lots of alternatives for walks. In addition to the main walk, we visited a wetland. There are also plenty of spots to enjoy a nice picnic. Highly... More

Rock art was amazing and not far from carpark . But the toilet facilities were disgraceful and need more attention than they are getting to provide a sanitary facility.for visitors who are paying a $25 fee to enter the park.

Beautiful views of the escarpment and incredible Aboriginal rock art all within easy walking distance of the carpark. Some rough terrain for older visitors. An amazing spiritual journey.
