Ubirr is one of Kakadu National Park’s two most famous Aboriginal rock art galleries. The galleries can be viewed by following an easy 1 kilometre circular walking track.

Climb the moderately steep 250 metre track to a rocky outlook with views across the floodplains. Time your visit for a spectacular and unforgettable tropical sunset from the top. There are three main sites of rock art to experience at Ubirr. At the Main Gallery you will see representations of the many animals the Aboriginal people hunted. Animals were painted to pay respect to them for giving their lives, to ensure future hunting success, or to illustrate a noteworthy catch. Important Dreamtime ancestors such as the Namarrgarn Sisters and a magnificent Rainbow Serpent are also represented in their respective galleries.

The walk to Ubirr takes about an hour and is 1 kilometre via a circular walking track from the car park. The climb to the lookout takes a further 30 minutes. During the tropical summer months access is restricted – check with the Bowali Visitor Centre for the latest information.
