Burrungkuy rock art site (Nourlangie)

The walls of the Burrungkuy (Nourlangie) rock art site, in World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park, have served as a shelter and canvas for thousands of years.

The paintings are a window to a rich spiritual tradition and can be reached by the circular 1.5 kilometre Burrungkuy (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 Kudjewg 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 Namarrkon, the Lightning Man. Climb to the Kunwarddewardde Lookout, and be rewarded with sweeping views of both Kakadu's escarpment and Burrungkuy (Nourlangie Rock).

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.
