Woohoo Kakadu

A Living Cultural Landscape

Despite the threat of rain, we had an amazing day today and I just wanted to share the wonder of what we saw.  (In picture form of course.)

We arrived at Nourlangie Rock (Burrunggul) just as a park ranger was heading out on a guided tour.  What luck?  We joined the group on a circuit walk past an ancient Aboriginal shelter and other outstanding art sites, as well as Gunwarddehwardde lookout with impressive views of the Kakadu escarpment and savannah woodlands below.

The rock art we saw at the Anbangbang Gallery was incredible.

Incredible (young) art painted in 1964

This is relatively (young) art – painted in 1964

P1200458

An explanation of ‘what’ is depicted in the painting.

Here’s some other art we saw in the vicinity.

After three (educational) hours, we moved on and our next stop – Mirrai Lookout.  A brisk, relatively exhausting, walk up to a lookout where we saw very little beyond the rain heading our way.

We made a quick exit and can’t wait to see what tomorrow holds.

I'd love to hear your thoughts ...
