We were lucky enough to time our visit with one of the guided ranger tours - there's plenty of information on the rock art already, but having a ranger with a thorough understanding bringing it to life really made our visit to this place.

Am on an intensive Australia tour and this was one of the stops. Had never seen any aboriginal art before so this was a first. There is an easy walk to the 2 main viewing areas and the artwork is very interesting. There are good info boards too! There is a short easy climb up to the top of a... More

We were here in the end of summer, so the temps were high (~95F) and so was the humidity. Definitely a tour one can do without a guide albeit the signage is a bit sparse. We saw all the view points and the lookout.

Took the easy walk in this peaceful environment. Some fine examples of indigenous rock art. Meet Nabulwinjbulwinj, Namarrgon, Barrginj and Namarndjolg, who later became Ginga, the great saltwater crocodile. Hardly anybody around, so enough time and space to take a good look at the rock art.

Each to their own, why anyone would want to come thousands of miles to see this is beyond me. Visitor facilities in Kakadu are sold old and un-maintained and park operators declare this is world heritage stuff but in reality there are bigger better rocks in many other places.

Great examples of different rock art styles, a lot of them well maintained. The art is easily accessible via steps and ramps. It can get quite crowded in the dry season, especially when big coach tours rock in and dominate the whole area. Nice lookout over stone country and escarpments.

A aboriginal use area where the natives stayed during the wet season. The walls of the rock faces served as canvases for their traditional paintings and storyboards. This is a heritage site for sure.

The park offers these free ranger led tours and we'd highly recommend the Nourlangie rock art tour. For this tour alone, it was worth paying the park entry fee. Our guide was the brilliant Christian Diddams, a park ranger who had previously worked at Uluru. Chris was a great communicator and really knew his stuff- giving an excellent, accessible insight...
