Ubirr

Ubirr is within the East Alligator region of Kakadu and is well known for its rock art. It consists of a group of rock outcrops on the edge of the Nadab flood plain where there are several natural shelters that have a collection of Aboriginal rock paintings, some of which are many thousands of years old. The art depicts certain creation ancestors as well as animals from the area. From the top of Ubirr rock there is a panoramic view of the floodplains and escarpments. (A view made famous in the Crocodile Dundee movie).
