Description

Kakadu's popular Burrungkuy (Nourlangie) region is known for its World Heritage rock art, colourful birdlife and easy-to-access walks and lookouts. More energetic visitors can enjoy extended walks through monsoon forests and stone landscapes. Rangers lead guided walks and talks at the rock art site during the dry season The Anbangbang Billabong walk is an easy, quiet loop through savanna woodlands and paperbark forest around a billabong teaming with birdlife. Nawurlandja lookout offers views of the escarpment, Burrungkuy (Nourlangie) rock and Anbangbang Billabong. It doesn't matter what time of year you visit Nawurlandja is guaranteed to impress. Looking across the savanna woodlands to the sheer cliffs of the Arnhem Land escarpment gives you a sense of the grand scale of Kakadu. Located in peaceful woodlands, the Nanguluwurr art site walk will have you admiring native flowers and a rock painting of a European sailing ship. Another pleasant walk is the 6 km Kubara pools walk, which takes in savanna woodlands, paperbark forests and monsoon thickets. As you stroll past the ancient cliffs of the Arnhem Land escarpment, look out for the many different bird species congregating around the flowering eucalypts. The Kubara pools walk is open most of the year but is most popular during the tropical summer. Please note: swimming is not permitted due to the risk of crocodiles. Dogs are not permitted. No camping or overnight parking allowed.

We found this very doable and we thought it was the best indigenous rock art and easiest walking tracks. Don't forget the lookout. Stunning views.

It is easier to walk along to the lookout end first, then make your way back throught the interconnecting art sites back to the car park. We started at 7.15am and with the lookout aswell it took us about 70min.
