Ubirr è una delle due gallerie di arte rupestre aborigena più famose del Parco Nazionale Kakadu.

Le gallerie sono visibili percorrendo un facile percorso pedonale circolare di 1 chilometro.

Sali il sentiero moderatamente ripido di 250 metri fino a una prospettiva rocciosa con vista sulle pianure alluvionali. Calcola il tempo della tua visita per uno spettacolare e indimenticabile tramonto tropicale dall'alto. Ci sono tre siti principali di arte rupestre da vivere a Ubirr.

La passeggiata per Ubirr dura circa un'ora ed è di 1 chilometro tramite un percorso pedonale circolare dal parcheggio. La salita alla vedetta dura altri 30 minuti. Durante i mesi estivi tropicali l'accesso è limitato: controlla con il Bowali Visitor Center per le ultime informazioni.

È richiesta una quota di iscrizione per entrare nel Parco Nazionale di Kakadu. Risparmia tempo in vacanza e acquista online il pass per il parco Kakadu prima di uscire di casa.
