This place is packed with interesting indigenous rock art embedded into rocks and also an easy climb to the top the rocky lookout provides spectacular views over the Nardab floodplain. While at the top our 4WD tour guide, Rich, pointed to us some nearby rocky formation where it was one of the filming locations of one of the movie productions,... More

We attended the ranger talks and learned so much . The ranger was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about the culture, geology and environment. We stayed at Merl campground close by which was great and even had hot solar powered showers. Take mossie spray . The Thai cafe at the Border store is excellent. Everyone should visit Kakadu and learn about... More

We spent several hours at Ubirr. The rock art is perhaps the best we have seen anywhere in the country. We enjoyed the climb to the top and the views are spectacular. The climb is well worth it.

With some of the best rock art in the world, most of which considered to be 50,000-15,000 years old and amazing sunset views from the lookout point atop of the rock its an absolute must if you're in Darwin or the Top End of the NT. Its very much out the way, about 1 & 1/2 hours from nearest populated... More

Came here 5 years ago, absolutely nothing has changed, which is a good thing, as this magical place will be here for years and years to come for others to look at in awe. Thoroughly recommend.

The rock art, the location, the climb, the views ate all part of the magic of Kakadu and the Australian culture. We took two 8 year olds, one 3 year old and two 2 year olds up to the lookout, so it is reasonably accessible.

Amazing views and fantastic rock art however the sheer number of people - 300 or more for sunset - ruined this experience for me. Would be much better in the wet with less people and more clouds.
