This ranger talk by Christian helped me to understand Kakadu on a whole different level. It went from being a visit to see an interesting landscape to a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in a living culture. Christian is passionate and knowledgeable, and also a great teacher. This talk is a very good way to start your Kakadu holiday.

This area had clear Ancient Aboriginal Art, much of it representing the lessons of the time. More spiritual lessons and stories about people we found on the walls. The explanations of the pictures were well detailed, and provided us with a greater understanding of the aboriginal culture and appreciation of their care for their country. The board walks made the... More

We went on the Park Ranger guided walk. Our guide was Christian. He was incredibly well informed. The water hole is beautiful however wild pigs are doing some damage. The lookout is worth a visit at sunset.

We can thoroughly recommend the rock art and historical talks at Nourlangie. Particular mention must be made regarding ranger Christian who held us and 30 others spellbound with stories, facts and information regarding the aboriginal culture, rock art and history of the area. It has been said already but he is truly a significant ambassador for the area and a... More

The Anbangbang shelter features the most accessible rock art in the Nourlangie area and is one of the finest examples of aboriginal rock art anywhere. It was painted in the x-ray style common of the Top End. However, is worth noting that is 20th-century rock art created by Najombolmi, a renowned aboriginal artist. Something that I do not remember being... More

This walk in the Kakadu Park provides a great lookout, and on its way good vision of Aboriginal drawings and understanding of hideouts. Thrilling!
