Ancestral paintings

Still staying at campground in Jabiru to be able to cool off in afternoons by pool. In morning visited the Nanguluwur rock gallery at Nourlangie. Short off road drive and 3 km return walk to site. Painting styles from oldest in park, 20,000year ancestral figures to the more recent 200 year old 'x-ray style'. Including an example of 'sailing ships', showing the arrival of Europeans. Grandfinal day! Went across the road from our campground to the 'crocodile Inn' to watch the game. Interesting building, built as a 'crocodile', well appointed inside. Hawks lost.....
