Sunrise at Yellow River
Date: June 23 -24, 2017
Place: Kakadu National Park, Northern Territory, Australia
This vast tropical National Park’s fauna and flora reminded me of Florida’s Everglades. Its aboriginal rock art and red hued stone formation infused mystique and a majestic flair. Below are the 2 short walks we took there.
This is the Northern outpost of the Park. We joined a ranger guided walk centered on the rock art and Aboriginal culture.
Much of the art focused on daily activities and food (animals). Below, a hunter and a wallaby? The paintings in the Park date back a couple hundred to 20,000 years.
The walk climbs up to a lookout.
Nourlangie Rock and Nawurlandja Overlook
This section seemed to feature more mythical subjects. The paintings above and below depict a Thunder God (thunderstorms are common in the area), and a child snatching evil spirit. Can you tell which is which?
Photos below are from Nawurlandja Lookout.
