Clambering up this short, steep rock slope will take your breath away!

Nawurlandja lookout offers world-class views across Anbangbang Billabong to Burrungkuy (Nourlangie) and the Arnhem Land escarpment.

The vistas are impressive all year round. Whether you venture out first thing in the morning or late in the afternoon, you won’t be disappointed. This peaceful spot is a great place to sit and take in the scenery at sunset or watch dramatic storms roll in during the tropical summer.

Once you reach the top of the walk, look out across the sea of savanna woodlands to where they meet the sheer cliff face of the Arnhem Land escarpment. The endless view is a fantastic taste of the grand scale that is Kakadu.


At sunset listen to cockatoos and kookaburras as they settle for the night.
