Lovely and relatively easy walk. I went solo in the middle of the day at 3pm with my hiking sticks, it was very hot but the walk is enjoyable. The reward at the end was a slow flowing river with many rock pools. Some areas...More

Gubara is located along the way towards Nourlangie rock. Look for the turnoff towards the left. About a 6km walk from the car park takes you through woodlands, sandstone cliffs and monsoon forests. You will arrive at some small cascading waterfalls and rock pools, but...More
