Nawurlandja Lookout Track

Moderate track
Starting from Nawurlandja Carpark, Kakadu, this walk takes you up to the Nawurlandja Lookout and back via a singular track, exploring the rocky ridge of the hill along the way. Expect a 180-degree picturesque view of the Burrungkuy (Nourlangie) and the Arnhem Land escarpment across a vast blanket of savanna woodlands. In late afternoon, kookaburras and cockatoos may give you a nice, peaceful concert of their own. Sit down and take in the refreshing scenery, and maybe have a little picnic if you'd like. Keep in mind that dogs are not allowed in Kakadu National Park. 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.
