Fodor's Expert Review Ubirr

Kakadu National Park Views

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 820-foot clamber to the top for wonderful views over the surrounding wetlands, particularly at sunset.  Take a flashlight to help you get down after sunset. For lunch or a postsunset Thai dinner, or to peruse arts and crafts for sale, stop by the Border Store and Cafe on your way in, if you're visiting during the dry season May through October.  Beware of wildlife on the roads if driving after dark.
