Explore the Aboriginal Rock Art of Kakadu
Gain a deeper understanding of indigenous history and spiritual life when you visit Kakadu National Park, which features one of the world's largest collections of Aboriginal rock art. Captivating stories are told within the beautiful outdoor galleries of Nourlangie and Ubirr, which contain paintings that are more than 20,000 years old—one of the longest historical records of any group of people on Earth. Marvel at naturalistic animal paintings, traditional x-ray art, Dreamtime creation stories, and depictions of early contact with European people, all of which speak to the Aboriginal cultural identity and their profound connection to the land.
