The circular walk is not arduous and takes you past several interesting Aboriginal art sites. Some of the art work is impressive and clearer than at Ubirr, and the information boards are good. Unfortunately we missed the ranger guided tour. Take plenty of water though...More

My family and I walked up the rock and were blown away with the majestic views of Kakadu plains and rock formations. So much beauty from one look out!

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!

Love this place. Need to go in the dry season if you don’t like humidity. An easy climb to the lookout for someone with average fitness.

Nourlangie Rock has a trail walk with several rock art sites. There's also a lookout but as it was excruciatingly hot on the day we were there, we didn't walk that far. The rock art is really interesting and well preserved so it's worth seeing....More
