Nourlangie Rock is located in the ancient landscape of Arnhem Land. Nourlangie Rock is well known for its spectacular collection of rock art that dates back centuries. The walls of Nourlangie Rock have been used in the past as shelter and canvas for thousands of years. Local Indigenous tribes used the rock as a way to communicate with each other, often drawing out stories and memories. The different paintings that can be discovered throughout the region enable visitors to gain a rich understanding of the spiritual historic significance of the area. Accompanying Nourlangie Rock are three cultural sites, including the Anbangbang Rock Shelter, Anbangbang Gallery and the Nanguluwur Art Site. Each of these locations have a collection of ancient rock art for travelers to explore.
