Barrk Burrungkuy (Nourlangie) Circuit
Starting from the Burrungkuy (Nourlangie) Parking lot, Kakadu, this walk takes you on a circuit around the Burrungkuy (Nourlangie) rock formation, visiting multiple rock art galleries and lookouts along the way. The rock art you’ll find here are some of the best and oldest ones on the planet, telling stories from different eras and depicting mythic creatures, wild animals and all kinds of stuff. The fauna and the flora of Kakadu National Park is unique, containing species like chestnut-quilled rock-pigeons and hard-to-see white-lined honeyeaters. Another one you may spot --if you can track it with your eyes-- is the Peregrine Falcon, the world’s fastest bird with a top speed of 390km/h. The name ‘Barrk’ means ‘male black wallaroo’ in the Bininj Aboriginal language. Try to take in all of the views, culture and history as you make your way around the rock formation. Bring plenty of water, wear a hat and apply sunscreen to have a better experience. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
