This was the first of the two main Aboriginal sites we visited and we were amazed by what we saw. We were here before we went to Nourlangie, and after that we could not choose between the two. Even if you follow the main path you need between one and two hours here. You could spend a very long time... More

Well worth the effort to see this amazing rock form and ancient aboriginal rock art. The area has been developed sensitively and offers a self guided walk around the various places with very informative boards explaining about the art work. I recommend climbing right to the top to get a wonderful vista and also experience the art work right at... More

This must be the one of the best outlooks in Kakadu. Nice gravel track along to the base of the Ubirr Rock. There is a climb which may put some people off however at the top there is a tremendous view. Yes there is a subtantial Aboriginal Art Gallery along the path. We enjoyed the time at Ubirr rock

This visit was a little less than inspiring. If you think of the rock art found in French and Spanish caves, the art found here pales by comparison even though it is actually "living" art. If you are a fan of aboriginal culture, OK, if you have a casual interest then the landscape alone is more inspiring. By the way,... More

We all enjoyed our time at Ubirr. The artwork is very fine and amazing. The views are out of this world. Definitely worth visiting. Bring plenty of water too.

We were advised by hotel staff to head out to Ubirr to view the sunset. The drive out was lovely, with beautiful escarpments and rock formations. Ubirr itself was a magical place, the walks and rock art were great. Then we made the climb up to the top of the lookout. We were a little undecided about this because neither... More

This is a big must to visit. Easy access to some excellent rock painting. If you have a guide this will add to the experience

One piece of advice would be to head up late in the afternoon to watch the sunset! Then stay on for 20 minutes or so to watch the sky change colour and then watch the colours as they show on the water upon the wetlands bellow. The art work is also very accessible for most people, with a bit of... More

Its a long drive from Darwin to get out there but if you are going to Kakadu, this is a must-see trip item. Sunset at Ubirr is magic, one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen in Australia.
