Very nice panels of pictographs. Aboriginal rock art is typically painted over the top of each other. Very different from American Indian rock art. Path between panels is well marked and leads to the path to the top. Climb to the top! The view is spectacular!

We went out to Ubiir to see the sun set. This is an amazing place. Awesome aboriginal art here. Must see this place. We watched the sun go down but left soon after it went beyond the horizon. Got worried about the steep and rocky climb back down if it got darker. As we drove home we looked out to... More

Impressive rock art galleries and spectacular viewing bluff, best interpreted by listening to the super-professional Park Ranger talks - during dry season, check for schedule.

Not a bad climb, views were worth the climb, great aboriginal paintings and the stories behind them. Would be worth seeing it at sunset.

Climbed Ubirr twice this year. It was an amazing experience. Be sure to reach the carpark by about 5.30pm if you do not want to compete for parking lots. From there, it would take about 20 - 30 min to reach the top of Ubirr where you can sit back and enjoy the sunset. Some parts of the rockscape are... More

Ubirr is a must see. The ancient art is amazing and the walk to the look out is exhilitating. For the older traveller most of the art is very accessible. The trek to the look out is challenging but my 84 year old father made it to the top.

This is a must do, especially sunrise or sunset. It's an easy climb and the views are spectacular. Very special place. Amazing aboriginal paintings on rocks. Well worth the drive, also check out Cahill's crossing look out for crocs!!!

What a wonderful experience. So much rock art and well maintained paths dotted with information boards. Worth wearing some hiking shoes and take some water. The climb to the top is the reward... 350 degree views. You can just sit down, have a rest and soak up this beautiful piece of Australia. Be respectful of the rules for entering the... More

As an Australian, let me tell you that this is the real deal. Managed by the NT Rangers and Aboriginal community, this short walk over a dramatic rock landscape is breath taking. Yes it is touristy but well worth the effort. The aboriginal art work is sensational and a wonderful and quick introduction to the regional 'X-ray' style of art... More

This is a "must do". I would have loved to see it at sunset but daytime is still very special. Easy to access along sealed roads with any vehicle. Good for the whole family.
