Untold stories in rock art at Ubirr, Kakadu

Ubirr, one of the most famous sites in Kakadu, has an abundance of ancient rock art galleries, evidence of where aboriginal groups camped under Ubirr’s cool rock shelters, and amazing views of the surrounding flood planes in Kakadu.

The painting includes traditional x-ray art from the last 1500 years, naturalistic paintings of animals. and paintings recording the early contact with European people. There is even a painting of a Tasmanian tiger, which have been extinct for 2000-3000 years now.

Going in the wet season just increased the fun, as we had to catch a boat though the paperbark forests to Ubirr, the roadway being flooded for the wet season.
