Nourlangie Rock, Kakadu National Park
(4.8/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Walk along the paths at Nourlangie Rock to see ancient Aboriginal rock art and shelters. The 1.5 km (5,000 ft) circular walk takes you around hand-painted images on the rock walls of the Rainbow Serpent, spirits, and other mythical Aboriginal creatures. You will see a diverse range of wetlands birdlife and aquatic animals. The climb to the lookout is rather steep, so be careful when ascending. Plan to see Nourlangie Rock and other attractions that appeal to you using our Kakadu National Park vacation trip planner.
