Nice place to spend an hour or so wandering around the interesting tracks exploring the ancient aboriginal art on the rocks/caves. Walk is circular, and there is a shorter walk if you take the left fork where the track splits. But only takes half an hour to do the longer walk. Some steps and rugged ground to climb over, so...

A very easy stroll along a paved path, followed by some rocky steps, brings you to the lookout with specular views of the landscape. There are a few Aboriginal rock paintings to view along the way. There are also a few other paths that led to different lookouts. Take plenty of water and insect spray, there are plenty of flies.... More

This site right on the border of Arnhem Land is atmospheric and a must if you visit Kakadu. The aboriginal art is interesting including the Lightning man and is very atmospheric especially if you have a good guide. Access is reasonably flat and not too energetic - a good pair of shoes is fine. With the cliffs of the adjacent... More

We walked around Nourlangie rock and I was surprised by the amount of Aboriginal rock art on view and the quality of it (still clear and easy to find and well looked after). It was an educational walk for all of us. If walking the track in an anticlockwise direction you're rewarded with a beautiful breeze through the open cave... More

This is possibly one of the best open place to see aboriginal mural art. It is about 15 min drive south from the park visitor center trough a paved road. At the parking lot there is a mile long trail which passes a dozen of sites with well preserved rock paintings: some are thousands years old, other recent. They describe... More

Nourlangie Rock is an incredibly beautiful place. Our children who are little loved climbing the Rock and looking at the rock wall paintings. A truly beautiful place to stand atop the rock and look out over the wetlands.

The art sites were amazing. Definitely worth a drive to see that alone. Good signage and the tracks are good. Part of the way is wheelchair accessible as well. We went on a hot day, but since it was overcast it wasn't extremely bad. When we went there were barely any tourists. Make sure to take insect repellent and plenty... More

We unfortunately visited Nourlangie on a extremely hot summer day & had the pleasure of sharing it with hundreds of flies ! So our walk wasn't very enjoyable as sweating in the heat & swatting flies basically took away the fun. Its best to set aside at least 1.5hrs to visit art sites along a 1.5km circular walk that also... More

This is a great location to look at aboriginal rock art. The best and most interesting I have seen. Access is easy with a short loop that takes you through a couple of sites in the area. The loop took us around 1 hour including stops to view the art. Terrain is moderate but steepens at the end of the... More
