Worth taking a look

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.

This is a great spot to visit while in kakadu, heaps of artwork on the rocks and great broad walks getting there. For a group of young people it was a easy climb but do take your time and take the camera along for photos. I'm defiantly going back because I didn't go to the top where the lighting stick... More

Most tours & activities were closed during wet season, so our only choice left were Nourlangie, we didn't spend much time there as we were rushing towards Katherine, It was kind of fun climbing the rocks and magnificent views. Just that the weather was too hot for us to stay longer. Practically no tourist at all during this season.

It is amazing to see places that are still so accessible, you can almost 'touch' (not allowed!) it. It seems the art/ paintings are re-touched every now and then, but it is still amazing to see and comprehend that people have created this, that long ago. This place is easily accessible by people that have difficulties with walking. We've visited... More

I thought it was boring and disappointing, lots of trees & rocks, not good for older people. Cultural Centres are terrible, nothing much there. Katherine Gorge so much nicer

Ubirr was closed (or rather the road to Ubirr was closed) so we went to Nourlangie - it was fantastic. There are several paths so you can walk as much or little as you like - we went around in a circle and some of the path was a little rocky but fine for everyone except the very old or... More
