Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

Observez la riche tradition spirituelle dont témoignent les peintures rupestres telles que celle de Namarrgon, l'homme éclairé, et profitez des visites commentées par les rangers du parc pour mieux en saisir le sens.

The paintings are a window to a rich spiritual tradition and can be reached by the circular 1.5 kilometre Nourlangie Rock Art Walk.

In the dry season, hear a Park Ranger speak this about ancient gallery and the relationship of the local people to their country and beliefs.

Learn how they sheltered here during the storms of the Gudjewg season (January to March).

Explore the three main sites around Nourlangie Rock - the Anbangbang rock shelter, Anbangbang gallery and Nanguluwur art site.

In the main (Anbangbang) gallery you will see the Creation Ancestor Namondjok, and the Creation Ancestor Namarrgon, the Lightning Man.

Climb to the Gunwarddehwardde Lookout, and be rewarded with sweeping views of both Kakadu's escarpment and Nourlangie Rock.

The stories say that Namondjok and Namarrgon took the form of short-eared rock wallabies as they travelled this area, where they cut two crevices in the rock as they passed, these are visible today.

An entry fee is required to enter Kakadu National Park.
