Well set up. Easy walking with some climbing and steps. You can do a short walk or a longer one. Great rock art and the overhanging rocks are impressive and welcome relief in the heat. It is worth doing the extra walk up to the escarpment. Unfortunate we missed the ranger talk which are held regularly throughout the tourist season... More

This park is very well set up with well defined walks and signage to explain the facts. Much of it can be seen without taking the steep trails but they are there if you want them.

We visited Nanguluwur in the morning (which we had to ourselves) so missed the ranger's talk at Nourlangie but still enjoyed our visit there. We had read up a little about rock art before our trip and there are also information boards which provide some explanation of what you're looking at. A must see when visiting Kakadu.

Visited Nourlangie in the dry season. Easy self-drive to site. A little steep stair climbing involved however not difficult. Great visible access to artwork. Viewing the ancient, indigenous artwork was both an inspiring and spiritual experience. Felt so privileged to see these drawings and later bought some books to learn about the aboriginal culture, to dig a little deeper into... More

The rock site was very interesting, but as there are a large number of tourists who visit the area, it would be good to have a store where you could purchase cold drinks or a snack.

The trip to Nourlangie was lovely - fantastic scenery, and the rock paintings were interesting. A guide gave a good overview of the meanings of the paintings. Worth the trip.

Burrunggui, to give this site its correct name (apparently the name will change back to the original soon), is about 20km from Jabiru. Try and get there for 9.00am to catch the free ranger tour. Christian, our very knowledgeable ranger, kept us captivated for 3 hours (!) as we toured the site and he focused on Aboriginal law; the seasons... More

This area is just amazing. We did not start out with the ranger group, but caught them midway and then continued on with them. I don't remember his name, but he was really knowledgeable and really loved what he was doing, really loved hte history and this came through in his talks. He spent a lot of time at each... More

We have travelled all over the world and listened to many ranger talks. Kakadu NP is extremely lucky to have Christian as their interpretive ranger at Nourlangie. He spent three hours blowing our minds with all sorts of information, ideas, possible explanations and personal stories (all with good humour) regarding the indigenous art work, history and culture in this area....
