My family visited Ubirr to watch the sun set and see the amazing Indigenous art. The walk is very easy and my three year old claimed up the rocks (with a little help) ok. Take plenty of water and insect repellent is a must - the fly's could carry you away!! However, don't let that put you off, watching the... More

Interesting Aboriginal rick painting site with informative signage. For me best part is the view from the lookout.

This place is amazing, it's history and views are are mind blowing. ABORIGINAL ROCK ART: Its awesome! But he most amazing thing about it is the stories and information on the area that each generation of Aboriginals has passed on! If you can go with a guide you will get a lot more out of seeing the rock art and... More

An historic Aboriginal site. Lots of rock art, fabulous views from the top. We were there on a day when temperature reached 40! Phew, but travelled early to avoid the heat of the day. Bit of a scramble to get to the top, however the views make it all worth while. Advise to carry at least a litre of water... More

What an absolutely spectacular place to visit! The rock art is fantastic!!! And the view from the top was just incredible!!! We went up for the sunset and I would thoroughly recommend it!!! Unfortunately didn't time our visit with one of the free guided tours, but the information at each site was great!!! A must do in Kakadu!!!

A wonderful area with magnificent aboriginal art. A easy walk for most of it with one area with a bit of a climb. Take some water and a hat not much shade. If you get there early there is guided talk.

WE stumbled upon this location having had other plans for the day cancelled. We were a little concerned about the difficulty of the climb to the top but were met by lovely rangers who explained it to us. A short walk of several hundred metres from the carpark brings you to the base of the look out and the first... More

The artwork and stories told by our guide created a magical experience at Ubir. Then we climbed to the top of the lookout. It was very hot and the rocks are brown and dusty and then you step up and look out over the brilliant green flood plains and it is all worth it. The view was spectacular. I highly... More

Unique views from the lookout over the East Alligator River flood plains. Even at the end of the dry season we were amazed at how green it was. The walk to the look out is medium difficulty over some uneven pathways/rocks but worth it. A must do place to visit when in Kakadu.

Did a guided tour with Ranger Annie, she made the experience very special for us. Definitely try to do this with the free ranger guided tours.
