This is quite a large site. Several Aborigine art galleries showcase the skill and simplicity of the rock art, and the trail is well marked out (or just follow the crowd). The climb to the top of the rocks is a bit steep (wear sensible shoes), but doable as the little children just scramble up. The view is beautiful -... More

So glad we called in, the rock art is incredible, the lookout is a must do also. Go early take water and breath it in! There's even a painting of a thylacine that roamed the plains until the introduction of the dingo. I will put my pic up altho it's not all that clear.

The sunset is just amazing. Walking.climbing will take around 15-20 mins with the kids. Daughter is 5 and she had no problem to climb up to the top. View is just magnificient. Grand Canyon-like based on the comments from my mates who have seen me posed at well..Grand Canyon. Will be good if you can be there early (car parks... More

A fantastic place. When you drive to Ubirr (50 km from Jabiru), you van walk en climb by your own to the lookout. Do not Go with aan organised trip. It is a waste of money. The marvellous view can be priceless.

We had a 2-hour tour with glen, who over the course of the 11 to 1 walk taught us a huge amount about the history, geology, and ecology of the area as well as the stories of the indigenous people and their society. Any tour that leaves me that much smarter after only two hours deserves five stars.

The rock art here is really worth the visit, as is the sunset - but be prepared for a crowd. We had a school group at the sunset platform. I estimate about 200 people all spread out on a series of rock platforms. Do expect a fantastic view of sunset & some excellent photos, but don't expect serenity! Gates shut... More

Was a great location many years ago. A lot of rock art here but the views over the wetlands are what people really come for. Over controlled location now with people herded off the site a few minutes after sunset by officialdom. Gates locked just after sunset and not open for sunrise.

Fantastic views from the top of Ubirr and the Aboriginal drawings were very interesting. Take plenty of water with you.

A must see site in Kakadu. The iconic scene from Crocodile Dundee just gives you a taste for what else is here. Make sure you take the time to look at the rock art. Also visit Cahill's crossing to watch the crocodiles compete with the fishermen for Barramundi.

Bit of a climb but awesome view. take some water and a camera. Gets very hot and sunset would be the best time to go up. Take a torch for the climb down and walking shoes. Thongs or sandals aren't good enough. Lots of rock art
