Long walk from carpark to excellent aboriginal painting sites - some rock climbing at lower level when moving towards upper viewing sites. Don't be fooled - this is a hike up a large rock face and certainly demands much more than thongs or slip on shoes. If you aren't sure of foot would recommend going with group. Great viewing from...

Mature aged couple returning to site to revisit rock paintings and witness sunset from rock face. Suggest about 1.5 hours out there with a 25 minute drive each way, all bitumen road but some wildlife after dark

Ubirr is amazing with rock art and a lookout. The evidence of Aboriginal culture is astounding and there is plenty of information to read. We went during the day and it was peaceful. I know people say to go at sunset, but the crowds were appearing as we left... If you want a quiet experience I would suggest going during... More

The local Arnhem Land Guides were informative and very helpful. It was more interesting because they were able to present information from their point of view.

Put this on your must see list if you go to Kakadu. Recommend getting there a few hours before sunset and walking around he rock art and the trails. Don't necessarily need a guid, but if you want to learn more then you can. Make sure you get right up to top of Ubir an hour before sunset to marvel... More

Visit Ubirr into the afternoon and stay for sunset. It is an easy walk from the car park past several galleries of rock art and then an easy climb to the top of Ubirr Rock. The experience of watching the sun set over the wetlands spread out below is one of those memories that will stay with me for the... More

A magical spot. A short easy walk around amazing rock art and then a fairly easy climb up to a fabulous lookout with views over the wetland of Kakadu. It could have been straight out of a picture book. I would have loved to have been on the twice daily tours so that I could understand more of the art... More

Every time I visit Ubirr I am stunned by the beauty of the place. The grass on the surrounding wetlands is greener than green, and the views are just sensational. Couple that with the awesome rock art galleries. An essential visit within Kakadu.

The scenery here is spectacular. If you can get there at the right time there is a great guided walk around tne rocks conducted by local rangers. They are very proud of their country and take great pride in showing it off to visitors. They also point out how the various trees, plants and insects are used in their ancient... More

Not only The rock art is superb, but the views are simple stunning! It is a great place to appreciate the escarpments and wetlands. I would highly recommend the guided tours done by the indigenous rangers. We went to the morning and evening ones.
