Easily accessible, sympathetically presented, environmentally friendly and a fascinating - and slightly overwhelming - glimpse into ancient history. The rocks are incredible and the options to cater for different levels of fitness and health are impressive. I loved this place. It may be time to replenish the signage though, as the information is very faded. A slightly surreal experience overall,... More

The Aboriginal cave paintings here have to be seen. Some are more dramatic than Ubirr but not necessarily better. We could not choose between the two sites. We think it is best to walk to the Anbangbang Gallery first, then go to the Incline Gallery and follow the path to the Anbangbang Shelter. The walk from the Incline to the... More

Really good aboriginal artwork in good condition. The good condition is due to it being restored in the 1960s. The Ubirr art is much more faded but somewhat more interesting.

We went to Nourlangie to experience the Sunset. However the outlook although spectacular just missed out due to the height of the Rock outcrop above the area of the outlook. However the track was easy to follow and there were other tracks to use to see other features in the area. There was some Aboriginal Art ? however a very... More

Parts of this walk are wheelchair accessible. For others there are a few modest walks uphill on pathways. The paintings are good but the best are at Ubirr, so if your time is limited I would suggest you visit Ubirr instead as it has more galleries.

Kakadu was supposed to be a highlight of our NT road trip. Instead, it turned out to be the biggest disappointment. I'm not doubting the environmental benefits of keeping such a large area of wilderness safe from development, nor am I doubting the historical significance of several of the archaeological sites. As a visitor to kakadu though - and Nourlangie... More

The 'art gallery' had a lot of interesting Aboriginal art and we had someone explaining it all to us, so enjoyable. Good walking in the area too.

Nourlangie offers rare glimpses of an ancient culture which survived in a very harsh and complex climate and ecosystem. We did the 3.5km return walk to the rock art, which was difficult given the intense April heat, also the spectacular climb to views of the escarpment (600 my but a little steep) and the rock base walk( 1-2km return).

This is some of the best rock art I have seen. I recommend going to a few of the sites as they are all a little different. We are so lucky that this beautiful ancient art and stories are available to us.

The walk around the base if the rock shows amazing rock art. ITS AN EASY WALK BUT WOULD RECOMMEND TAKING A GOOD AMOUNT OF WATER. Well worth the visit.
