Wonderful artwork. Worth doing the moderately steep climb to the lookout and seeing the fabulous view.

“Step back in time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

The Nourlangie rock site is about a 30 minute drive from Jabiru and is clearly sign-posted. Bitumen all the way so it will probably be accessible when other sites are closed. Take your time to enjoy the approx. 1.2km walk through native vegetation and ancient art galleries. Uneven ground and stairs in parts of the route. Even in April it was very warm - take water, a hat or umbrella.

“Open when almost everything else closed after flooding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We walked a circuit which took us through a huge shelter cave, past several rock art sites and up to a brilliant lookout over the Kakadu escarpment. It was hot and steamy and the circuit involved some climbing. With most other sites closed during our visit to Kakadu, we were pleased we got to visit this one.

“January wet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

But fortunately dry, but very hot! Take plenty of water and I used a brollie to keep of the heat which worked wonders. make sure you go up the rougher track to the left as you first enter as it goes all thorough the rocks, cave overhangs. Excellent quality and clarity of Aboriginal rock art.

“Indigenous art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Ubirr has probably more art, but we enjoyed seeing the Aboriginal art again. Parks need to do a bit of work on signage which is rather tired and in some places ambiguous. Some of the tracks from one art site to the other are unclear and could do with small arrows to help people who aren't used to the Australian bush.

It’s true the signage in Kakadu is looking a bit tired – it has been here for many years now. The good news is that we are working on new interpretational signage in consultation with the traditional owners. These will aim to capture the thoughts and feelings of the traditional owners. We hope you’ll visit again in the future – and experience the area through new eyes.
