Ubirr has an impressive display of Aboriginal paintings scattered through six shelters in the rock. The main gallery contains a 49-foot frieze of X-ray paintings depicting animals, birds, and fish. A 1-km (½-mile) path around the rock leads to all the galleries. It's just a short clamber to the top for wonderful views over the surrounding wetlands, particularly at sunset. Take a torch to help you get down after sunset. Stop in at the Border Store and Cafe on your way in; they do lunch and a post-sunset Thai dinner and sell arts and crafts. Beware of wildlife on the roads if driving after dark.
