“a must see”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

I was not expecting this--I was blown away and could have spent more time there,especially if no one else was there.You must make it all the way to the top,it is worth it.There is a lot of great rock art there and the views are spectacular and if you saw Croc Dundee,then apparently some of it was filmed here

“Strenuous site with good rock paintings”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Long walk from carpark to excellent aboriginal painting sites - some rock climbing at lower level when moving towards upper viewing sites. Don't be fooled - this is a hike up a large rock face and certainly demands much more than thongs or slip on shoes. If you aren't sure of foot would recommend going with group. Great viewing from upper levels across Arnhem land and out to wet lands. Definitely wouldnt try and climb after any rain as would be very slippery. Toilet facilities available but not much else.

“Great experience”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Mature aged couple returning to site to revisit rock paintings and witness sunset from rock face. Suggest about 1.5 hours out there with a 25 minute drive each way, all bitumen road but some wildlife after dark

“Amazing rock art - a MUST SEE”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Ubirr is amazing with rock art and a lookout. The evidence of Aboriginal culture is astounding and there is plenty of information to read. We went during the day and it was peaceful. I know people say to go at sunset, but the crowds were appearing as we left... If you want a quiet experience I would suggest going during the day.

“Ubirr Talk and Walk”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

The local Arnhem Land Guides were informative and very helpful. It was more interesting because they were able to present information from their point of view.
