Apart from the breathtaking views from on top of the rocks ( not too hard to get there but definitely worth the effort)the beauty of the place was the quietness. Very few people around at any one time, so you feel you have the place...More

There are many very special places in Kakadu and Nourlangie is one of them. Rock paintings many thousands of years old, incredible vistas, well marked trails. It's a very special place that's worth at least one visit. Like just about everywhere in the top end,...More

This area is well worth the effort. So much to see and the rock formations are definitely some of the most interesting I've seen.

Rock paintings, beautiful country, what more could you ask for? Loved it! Not gonna add photos as the photos aren't as good as being there. Go check it out yourself, you'll love it to!

I think I preferred the Rock art to the Ubirr site. Different things to see though and definitely worth visiting. You dont need as much time here as Ubirr.

Excellent Aborigine art site. Well worth a visit. Try early morning to avoid the heat. The flies are a problen though, even 50% DEET does not put them off!

There are about 3 different galleries and an easy walk. You can extend the walk up onto the escarpment for views. Good information to explain or arrive at a time when there is a guided walk by the ranger to get the most out of...More

The first section is quite flat and easy going. great rock art. to get to the view is a scramble with some short steep going up the rocks. Its worth it but you'll have to carry the little'un and help the 4YO Take water... More
