Welch, David M

Ubirr and Nourlangie are two outstanding rock outliers adorned with Aboriginal paintings lying on plains beside the East Alligator River and the Arnhem Land Escarpment in Kakadu National Park in Northern Australia.

For thousands of years Aborigines recorded important ceremonies, deities and totemic plants and animals by painting their images in the rock shelters, cliffs and overhangs of the region.

Aboriginal Paintings at Ubirr and Nourlangie provides a guide to the art sites explaining their significance for Aboriginal people both past and present.
