The road to Ubirr was flooded and so, although Ubirr was open, we couldn't reach it. The tourist office in Darwin had assured us that it was open all year (which it is) but failed to mention the road being inaccessible at times so we were annoyed. However, Nourlangi was open so we went there instead and it was wonderful.

This was a great surprise. The Art on the rocks was really amazing with explanation of the drawings some more than 5000 years old. Then you need to climb the rocks and see a great view of the Park, a 360 degree view. As a family this was great, our 6 year old could do the climb with easy. This... More

If you have bothered to come all the way to the NT you'd be absolutely silly to miss this place. There is a magic in this place that cannot be described. Make sure you come well supplied with plenty of fluid, good walking shoes (strong sturdy shoes). This is remote so do have your first aid kit, and be prepared... More

with a scenic view across the plains, the position of the sun, the character of the rocks and the history of Ubirr as a meeting place how could you miss this! We went twice and each time Ubirr had its own character and light. The second visit we were caught in a tropical downpour on the path in. Sheltering in... More

Absolutely superb tourist attraction. Allow plenty of time to walk around the rock art and then stay for the magnificent sunset. It was sensational. Photos don't do it justice. You have to experience it first hand. The beautiful bright green that fills the National Parks is amazing.

Beautiful place to watch the sunset, a bit of a walk up to the best viewpoints, but worth it for the lookout over billabongs and hills and the sun setting in the distance. The walk around the area has plenty of beautiful rock art, with explanations at the main ones. Certainly worth a look while in Kakadu/Jabiru, and if you... More
