What seem’s like years ago now, me and the Aussie took a trip to Kakadu and the first part of our trip is detailed here.
In Kakadu Part 2 we spent the Saturday of our trip exploring the Cooinda part of the national park before taking a trip on the Yellow River Cruise.
Kakadu is an UNESCO World Heritage Centre as unique archaeological and ethnological reserve and having visited I can totally understand why, it is a stunning landscape literally everywhere you turn.
As we visited during the wet season quite a few places were either closed off because of floods or were only 4WD access only so our little Hyundai couldn’t get all the way down to the places we wanted to visit but it kind of worked out well because we wouldn’t have managed to see everything we did want to see and it’s a great excuse to visit again in the future. It was also pretty hot and humid so it was difficult to spend a lot of time out in the direct sun during the middle of the day.
Firstly we headed to Gubara in the Nourlangie region which is full of rock art galleries, kind of by accident after I missed the turn off (oops).
The drive down to Gubara was about 8km before we got cut off by the flooded track down. It was however a totally stunning drive down with the escarpments rising up along the roadside, so much so we had to keep stopping the car to take more and more photos.
Below are some of my photos from our mini drive before we had to head back to the main road because of the flooding.
