Walking by the many drawings on the rocks and listening to the different explanations these paintings become more interesting. However, I somehow had expected a better conserved quality, whiich of course is asking too much for thousands of years. Later we learned that many of...More

Words cant describe this place. It is spectacular to look at, rocks rising out of the plains. The art-work is amazing....and to think that people have been living here for 20-60,000 years....worth a visit and plenty of refection.

We did the loop walk which is about 1km and took about 30-45 min. This walk is wheelchair accessible and is suitable for all ages. The explanations/stories for each rock painting are interesting and really showed the life of the aboriginal people thousands of years...More

Very nice! It is really worth a visit. You can choose one of several walk - from 45 minutes to 6 hours. The landscape and the aboriginal painting dating 1000 years ago are fantastic.

It's well laid out with route maps and each amazing art work has a plaque about it. You don't have to do the entire walk (last bit involved a climb), but if you can, it's worth it for the views. Try to avoid the midday...More

So worth the visit and the drive. Loved Nourlangie and all the rock art. Make sure you do the ranger talks as they are great to help you understand the way of life and all about the art and dreamtime.

Its a long walk, to do the full loop, for a 4 yr old, but you could just do the shorter loop and still see heaps. Not sure about the 11 month...you will probably have to carry a fair bit of the way. There are some steep bits... More
