(550+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
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.

  • Well maintained, easy to walk the tracks and make it to the lookout. Also one of the few places open early in the dry season.
  • Nice and quiet, fairly easily accessible rock art. Worth the trip
  • Ranger guided tour a must. Explained the meaning and stories behind the rock art. Beautiful historic site.
