However I’m glad I was on TERRITORY EXPEDITION'S 2 DAY KAKADU TOUR at NOURLANGIE – I got much more value from the area by having guide MATT explain the story behind not only... More

Not only do you see some ancient Aborginal rock carvings but there is a fantastic view to be had if you do the full walk. Be sure to wear a hat and take plenty of water if it's hot as there is no shade on parts of it. Very steep, wear good walking shoes.

Nourlangie Rock is a must when touring Kakadu. Very easy to access and well signed. Have read so much about it and seen it on TV but nothing beats seeing it for yourself.

Apart from the flies, this was a lovely easy walk to rock art. Another highlight that shouldn't be missed is the lookout to get a lovely view of the whole area. As you are leaving on the road, take a left turn signposted to nawurlanja lookout. Once in the carpark, the 2 options are the anbangbang billabong or the nawurlanja... More

Loved the walk that showed the amazing Aboriginal rock paintings. Also the lookout. Fabulous views and would be lovely for sunset pictures. Well worth the effort. If you come at the right times a park ranger will guide you and talk about the history. Good car park with toilet facilities at this location.

We visited Nourlangie on the 31st Oct, it was VERY HOT!!! We had originally planned to do the Barrk Sandstone Bushwalk (a 12km walk that begins just after the art site) after deciding it was too hot (39 degrees) and not much tree cover we turned back, when we got back to the site the ranger was there about to...

Rock art was well worth the visit. The view from the lookout is not to be missed. Very hot in the dry so take plenty of water for the short work as there is some climb involved.

This was our first taste of Aboriginal rock art which was interesting but as we discovered later there are a lot of better sites in Kakadu and Arnhem Land.

We had no particular plans but took the turnoff and after a short drive came across this great location. There are many, many examples of indigenous rock art here to enjoy, make sure you visit. The walk is not overly taxing although at times the stairs get to you and the path is difficult to see at times. If you... More

We went on a guided tour with a ranger, which was fabulous. The walk is easy and the information given was extremely interesting. The art work on the rock walls was in great condition and there were some interesting stories that we wouldn't have known if we'd gone on our own.
