Ubirr Rock Art Site

Description

Ubirr is within the East Alligator region of Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory of Australia, and is known for its rock art. It consists of a group of rock outcrops on the edge of the Nadab floodplain where there are several natural shelters that have a collection of Aboriginal rock paintings, some of which are many thousands of years old. The art depicts certain creation ancestors as well as animals from the area such as barramundi, catfish, mullet, goannas, long-necked turtles, pig-nosed turtles, rock ringtail possums, and wallabies.

RvTrips' review

28 Jul 2015

Ubirr (oo-bir) is a very important and ancient rock art site in the north east section of Kakadu National Park. It should definitely be on your to-do list when you visit Kakadu in the Northern Territory. Maps are available from the Bowali Visitor Centre that will give directions to Ubirr, and let you know what time tours will commence.

During the dry season rangers give free rock art talks as these paintings provide a fascinating record of Aboriginal life over thousands of years. Some of this rock art is tens of thousands of hears old - I understand that is one of the longest historical records of any group of people in the world. Some of these paintings have been done over older paintings - hard to imagine how old they would be.

The car parking area at Ubirr is very large with toilet facilities. The main walkway to the rock art is accessible by wheelchair making it available to all visitors. The path is well sign-posted and information boards at each site will explain the meaning of these amazing paintings and their importance to Aboriginal people from this area.
