Nanguluwurr rock art site and walk

Nanguluwurr rock art site and walk is a pleasant walk through woodlands leading to a quiet art site with fascinating Aboriginal rock art in Kakadu National Park.

Allow two hours for the 3.4 kilometre round trip along the easy to moderate grade track. As you pass through the woodlands, keep a keen eye out for the rarely seen white-throated grass wren.

Take your time exploring the wide range of subjects and styles. There are hand stencils, dynamic figures in large headdresses carrying spears and boomerangs, and representations of Namandi spirits and mythical figures, including Alkajko, a female spirit with four arms. You might be surprised to see an example of contact art, a painting of a two-masted sailing ship with dinghy trailing behind.

An entry fee is required to enter Kakadu National Park. Save time on your holiday and purchase your Kakadu park pass online before you leave home.
