Yurmikmik lookout 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.
This walk goes through open woodland up a stony ridge to the lookout where you can enjoy views over Jawoyn country. To the north and west are the southern ridges of Kakadu. The sandstone hill to the northwest is Bornluk. Look along the road for the lush ribbon of vegetation growing along the South Alligator River.
To the south is the flat country of the Marrawal Plateau. Marrawal refers to the seasonally swampy uplands between the South Alligator River and the Katherine River. The trees at the lookout with yellow-green bark are dirringgil (gardenia). Mungguy eat their fruits and use the resin as glue. Smell the fragrant flowers in the dry season.
