  • Nolangee Rock is one of the main places in Kakadu National Park, so I thought it was crowded with many tourists, but the tourists were sparse, and the guideboards installed at each point were also severely damaged. There were murals of Namarndjolg and Thunder Man's Namarrgon on the rock art site, but no one stopped too much. The road to lookout was a climb, but I was able to climb it relatively easily. The view from the lookout was a view that seemed to be Kakadu.
