Fantastic rock art sites, nice views of rock formations and out over the landscape. Overall it was a thought-provoking place to visit, a short walk in the middle of the day with some shady patches that provided a bit of welcome relief from the midday sun and its heat.

A short 40odd kilometre drive from Jabiru this part of Kakudu is a must for both Australians and overseas visitors wanting to experience the real Australia. The rock art is superb and easily accessible for people with a reasonable fitness level.

This Rock Art gallery area is well located between Kakadu and Cooinda and well worth a visit. It was 40 degrees when we were there so a bit hot for a walk around but the art was worthwhile and well preserved. After September, and end of tourist season, there are no ranger guided talks about the art and area, which... More

We found it not very spectacular, a little nice stroll, the paintings are not of the best quality, Ubirr is much better.

This was good introduction to Northern Territory aboriginal art aided by helpful explanations by our driver guide. The boardwalks made visiting the site easy.

Saw this area just before we left the park and it is something that everyone should go and see! We managed to listen to one of the rangers talk about the history of Nourlangie which was interesting. You can see amazing aboriginee artwork which is also worthwhile. Definitely worth visiting

An easy walk to see some fantastic rock art. Well worth the time if your time is a premium. It will only take 30 mins if you have a young family pushing you along. What was nice is the shade of the rock face that shelters the art and the visitors, keeping both cool

Amazing rock paintings. Our favourite was of the 'dance party' one. Awesome! Try to catch the free ranger talks. We were lucky to catch the last bit of a ranger talk. He spoke very well and described to us the amazing (and long) history of the Aboriginal people of the area.

There are several sites which are a must see: 1. Nourlangie 2. Angbangbang gallery 3. Angbangbang Billabong walk 4. Nanguluwur 5. Nawulandja The first 3 are the most popular ones. and there are rangers for guides. Nanguluwur has the best rock arts of the site and a 600 m climb to Nawulandja is a must see!

This site does not have much rock art as much as in Ubiru, i guess. But still informative with proper description of each art
