Rated as a medium walk this visit to Nourlangie Rock was worth the effort The rock art is specctacular and the view from the top is worth it... we visited whilst it was raining - and although it some places a little slippery it surely made the temperature very pleasant

Firstly we are late 40's moderate fitness, and registered with Bowali Information Centre the day before. You must be able to carry 5-6L of water each, food and first aid. It took us 5.5hours, it was quite hot however in the heat of the day we actually ended up in a well shaded path. Which was a blessing as the... More

This was such a great experience. The artwork is in amazing condition given it's 1000 years old. We only went as far as the gallery which takes only a few minutes to get to and is an easy walk. Definitely worth the trip.

There is a lookout point on the road down to the Nourlangie rockface. I can't remember it's name but it is a short 300m steepish rock walk. When you look back to the Nourlangie rock, it is stunning! Highly recommended!

I had one day to see some of the rock paintings in Kakadu and chose OffRoad Dreaming as a small tour organizer to get me there: It was truly a wonderful choice as the guide was incredibly well informed about the history of Darwin and then of Kakadu, its traditional owners, the paintings - which are breath taking -, the...

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.
