Yurmikmik lookout walk

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

As a result of the constantly evolving COVID-19 situation, Kakadu National Park will be closed until 11.59 pm 18 June 2020.

Parks Australia will continue to enable access to Kakadu National Park for residents of the park and surrounding Aboriginal communities, essential services, and those working in the community.

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.
