Kakadu National Park Sights

Nourlangie Rock

  • Geological Site

Updated 01/15/2014

Fodor's Review

Like the main Kakadu escarpment, Nourlangie Rock is a remnant of an ancient plateau that is slowly eroding, leaving sheer cliffs rising high above the floodplains. The main attraction is the Anbangbang Gallery, an excellent frieze of Aboriginal rock paintings.
