Interesting visit to one of the best places to see cave paintings of Australian aborigines. Unlike other parts of the world here, the paintings range from very ancient periods to practically current works, since the aborigines have maintained their traditions until very recently.
There is a route called "Ubir Aboriginal Art Walk" that runs through the three large rocks where the sets of coats are located. First we go to the rock where the shelter is called "Mabuyu", then we go to the rock where the "Main Gallery" is and finally we go to the big rock where there are different shelters ("Namarkan Sisters" and Rainbow Serpent "), climbing to the top of it to contemplate a beautiful and panoramic sunset, by the way very busy (yes, the views can not be better dominating the entire surrounding horizon).
The whole visit is guided with good explanations where the legends and traditions reflected in the paintings tell us. The visit starts in Ubir and is also managed there. We are located in the impressive and spacious Kakadu National Park, in northern Australia.
