Located in the north of the park, Ubirr is one of Kakadu's three most famous rock art galleries. The 5 main art sites at Ubirr can be reached by following an easy 1 km circular walking track. Among the sandstone outliners are richly painted rock walls that record battles, food animals, dangers and mythical beings believed by 'Bininj' (the local language name used by Aboriginal people of the region to describe themselves) to dwell within the landscape. Many different styles of art can be seen here ranging in age from about 10,000 years ago to the most recent being less than 100 years. It is rewarding to take your time when examining the paintings as, in addition to the large images, there are numerous tiny and exquisitely done paintings throughout the site. During the dry season, park rangers and local Aboriginal people work together to provide a series of art site talks at Ubirr.
