Meet your Kakadu tour guide
You’re spending the day today with a wonderful guide from Ayal Aboriginal Tours, who will take you on a tour to places that have stood the test of time. This day-long cultural immersion into the stories and history of the people of this region is a memorable experience, to say the least.
View remarkable rock art at Ubirr
Ubirr is one of the most respected rock art sites in the world. Your guide will give you an insight into the Aboriginal culture associated with some of these intriguing works of art, including how people lived, hunted and gathered. You will see paintings of spirit characters and the famous x-ray art depicting the internal structure of some of the animals of this country.
Rest beside a billabong
Your tour also takes you to the breathtaking Anbangbang Billabong, renowned for its spectacular birdlife and paperbark swamp. Learn about the local Aboriginal bush tucker and enjoy magnificent views of Nourlangie across the billabong.
Find a treasure at Marrawuddi Art Gallery
Your final stop on this incredible tour of Kakadu is the Marrawuddi Art Gallery, where every piece of original artwork has been created by people living in and around Kakadu National Park. Find a piece of art that you love and buy with the good conscience that all profits from this gallery go back into the local community.
Visit a 20,000-year-old outdoor gallery
The Burrungkuy (Nourlangie) rock art site is a must-stop on your journey through Kakadu. Here, amongst towering rocks and cavernous spaces, Aboriginal people gathered for tens of thousands of years. Your guide will share extraordinary stories of the images that have been entrusted to him by the three caretaker Aboriginal clan groups of the region, and you will learn how Aboriginal people would live here during the wet and dry season.
Overnight at Jabiru
Spend one more night at Anbinik Kakadu Resort in Jabiru before hitting the road the next day in time for your flight home from Darwin. As you drive west, reflect on all that you have seen and the many stories you have heard. You’ve just experienced the oldest Australian culture at its best.
