What an amazing experience it was to view the sunset from ubirr, absolutely breathtaking with stunning view over the plains of arnhem land and the walk up toward the rock, taking in all the ancient rock painting!

It was such a hot day but boy, this was amazing place! The rock painting were extraordinary and the stories behind them were just facinating. The view at the top of the hill was stunning.

Still tops my list of the most amazing places I have ever visited. The gallery of ancient rock art and the view of the world from the top of the hill is astounding and humbling. This is a very special place.

Some paintings here are up to 20000 years old. It was interesting to see the different content of the art as the climate changed with sea levels: from pictures of Tasmanian Tiger, serpents and wallabies to fish and turtles etc We saw Ancestral Art plus...More

The rock table is filled with people at sunset and a bit overrated. On the walking trail however, nice rock art to enjoy.

The several trails are directed to the aboriginal rock paintings. All viewing sites are well marked and improved with staps and information panels. While we were looking at the cave walls, several tour guides were there, telling exactly what was written on those panels. One...More

Parking Safety Kakadu National Park (3 Replies)
Hello from Germany, we are visiting Australia for the 4th time in October for 32 days, but it's the first time alone on our own (my wife & me), we are hiring a Britz Safari Landcruiser from Darwin to Alice Springs (12 days). Now I don't wana insult any body, but how is the safety at the parking areas when we leave all our stuff in the Car and go Hiking and Swimming at Litchfield, Ubirr, Nourlangie, Maguk, Gunlom & Edith Falls? And another question, how is the Camping Area at...More

Same as parking anywhere, just keep valuables etc hidden. I havenot heard of any reports of any breakins to vehicles for years. It is too far away from the bored city youths who do this type of action. The Devil Marbles are only a very basic camping area, fireplaces are the only facilities provided. By October there will be very few, if any campers there.

Is it possible to purchase lunch/food at Border Store if heading out on river cruise and then Ubirr for the day?

From when I was last there it sells food but not lunch, might have some takeaways such as microwaved pies.

Kakadu Lodge or Anbinik Suite (4 Replies)
I hope it's OK that I started a new thread. It's time sensitive, so I hoped to get quick feedback, before my room offer expires. We are going to be in Kakadu for two nights. Originally I had booked two nights at Cooinda Lodge, however after doing more research and deciding I wanted to go to Ubirr, it was suggested to split the time in Jabiru and Cooinda. I have found availability in both Kakadu Lodge (One Bedroom Cabin) or Anbinik (Suite). Does anyone have any quick feedback on which would be...More

Mercure Croc hotel is most comfy in that area. Second choice would be Kakadu lodge as there is a nice pool and a good bistro - for dinner. Cabins are basic- but fine. Anbinik has no dinner option- and Jabiru has no other proper options-
