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.

Ubirr

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.
