A comfortable walk to view traditional Aboriginal rock art. Some of it is wheelchair-accessible. Helpful if you have a guidebook to explain the stories behind each artwork.

This is an amazing detour off the highway with rock art that dates back well over 50,000 years. Truly worth the drive.

One of the top 10 things to do in Darwin Australian Outback Tours . I visited this ancient rock art gallery while staying in Mercure Crocodile hotel and learn about the people who once lived and sheltered there. You can see Aboriginal rock paintings all over at Nourlangie Rock.

This place is another slice of heaven in the Territory. A must go if you've travelled a long way to be here. I suggest that you look up when the national park tour guides do tours through the park, because they will point out things, that you can't read in a guide book, and share with you stories about the...

Now there will be flies... in the wet anyway. Still, well worth a visit for the magnificent rock formations and fascinating rock paintings. Look out for the lightening man!

Well worth seeing and 'feeling' gives one a sense of the history of the place. Easy walk with viewing of Aboriginal Rock art in a most impressive Landscape.

Fascinating place. It was explained that the aboriginal owners are asking everyone to call it by its correct name, Burrunggui, instead of "Nourlangie" which was some white guy's misunderstanding. I was glad I had a fly net.

Even though it was hot and humid and sweat was just pouring of us, i have to say this was the best spot in Kakadu. The art was amazing and the views were extraordinary, it was like Australia's Africa. Awesome spot! I suggest anyone who goes up here in the warmer days to wear a hat, sunscreen and take plenty...

We stopped here when our toddler was tired and not at all in the mood to walk around in 35degree heat. But, that said, we stayed for 30mins and this was still long enough to see 3 different rock art sites and take in the beautiful surrounds.
