Day 48 – Burrunggui {Nourlangie Rock}

On our final leg of the journey as we worked our way back towards Darwin, we stopped to stretch our legs and explore the amazing Burrunggui, a large rock formation in the Kakadu National Park.  The Nourlangie loop walk is on a beginner level but there is a further 12km walk that you can do which takes you further up into the rocky landscape. Unfortunately we didn’t have time for this walk and so stuck to the shorter stroll, but it was the perfect stop to stretch our legs. This walk takes you past the amazing Aboriginal artwork preserved here for over 20,000 years.

It was fascinating to see and incredible to think that these drawings have been around for all those years.
