Nourlangie (Burrungkuy)
Nourlangie, also known as Burrungkuy (sometimes written Burrunggui), is an escarpment in Kakadu National Park filled with over 20,000 years' worth of Aboriginal history, making it a site of extreme cultural importance. Burrungkuy, an Aboriginal word, refers to the higher parts of the rocks, while the word Anbangbang references the lower parts. The rock art and archaeological details here illustrate the social and environmental history of the Top End area.

There are many ways to experience the heritage of Nourlangie, including following the mile-long circuit trail that winds through what was once a home for the Aboriginal people during wet seasons. Indoors, the Anbangbang Gallery showcases the art of an Aboriginal artist who repainted his works in 1964 to restore much of their original vibrancy. Those who visit Nourlangie during the months of June through September can hear stories of the area's cultural significance from rangers in the area.

Practical Info

The rock art at Nourlangie can be seen all year-round, though it’s highly suggested that you coincide your visit with the months in which the rangers give cultural talks. The Bowali Visitor Centre at the entrance to Kakadu National Park helps visitors make the most of their Kakadu experience and is open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily.
