Plenty of rock art and a steepish climb to the summit where there is a 360 degree view of wetland and striated rock faces.

We really love this place, exhilarating views and wonderful ranger guides. Wishing we had more days to see more of the site.

It's a beautiful place. You can combine aboriginal art and beautiful landscape. The best moment is 1hour before the sunset, you can enjoy the place and the colors changing. Really amazing!!!!

Awesome rock paintings. Our indigenous guide Marcus was great and gave very heartfelt explanations at each gallery. At sunset there were many people perched all over the rocks but there is plenty of room for everyone. From the top of the rocks, you can see the surrounding rock faces, the wetlands and the view is amazing.

A Kakadu must see. Easy walk for kids and families. Interesting rock art easy to see and a small climb to an outlook that is not high but will take your breath away. It felt like an important spiritual place to me - for the traditional owners. A real privilege to be invited to their "church"

Fabulous guide (Natasha) : brought the indigenous culture and art alive for us. Put this one on your must see list to visit late in the day: rock art and spectacular sunset.

Just on the edge of Kakadu, Ubirr is well worth a visit. There is an easy walk to various rock paintings ending with a short climb to the top of the rocky outcrop. The 360 degree view across the plains is a must see, and even more spectacular at sunrise or sunset!

Breathtaking. Must stop by the boarder store for that after sunset. The sunset is stunning and worth the walk. You see the kakadu adds but doesn't compare to in person

Avoid camping at Merl! The mosquitoes are horrendous! Ubirr is great. Because you can climb tot he top of the rocks, you get a better view than anywhere on the floodplain.
