Nanguluwurr rock art walk

Parks Australia has announced re-opening plans for Kakadu National Park, with visitors to be welcomed into selected sites around the park from Friday, 19 June 2020.

Please visit the website to confirm which sites you will be able to enjoy during your next trip to Kakadu.

. . .

Nanguluwurr art site walk is a peaceful walk through woodlands, leading to a cool, quiet Aboriginal rock art site. Nanguluwurr was a major camping site for Aboriginal people.

Here you’ll find paintings covering many different styles, including hand stencils, food sources like fish and turtle, a fantastic example of ‘contact art’, a painting of a two-masted sailing ship (lugger). Sit and ponder why there is a painting of a sailing ship some 90 kms inland and nowhere near a waterway.

Then learn about female spirit Algaihgo and why you should heed the messages from the dream time.

3. 4 km return | 2 hours See it: All year round
