The photos speak for themselves. You get beautiful campsites, wonderful scenery and a wealth of Aboriginal art sites on a leisurely trip which gives you time to really appreciate your surroundings.
Baroalba Creek is the main drainage for Mount Brockman, a large, irregularly shaped massif sitting on the plains a few kilometres away from the edge of the Arnhem escarpment. Its maximum dimensions are about 11 kilometres east to west and 15 kilometres north to south. Its maximum height is about 300 metres above sea level, about 240 metres above the surrounding plain.
While the edges of the massif are extremely rugged and steep, much of the centre consists of a large basin drained by Baroalba Creek. The rugged nature of the approaches prevented buffalo from reaching the basin, making this one of the few undisturbed areas in Kakadu.
The area is full of rock shelters that were used by Aboriginal people over the millennia. It contains what may well be the greatest concentration of Aboriginal rock art in Australia, dating from the most ancient to the most recent. We are not, however, permitted to show photos of most of the paintings on this website.
The best time to visit this area is during or immediately after the green season when every creek is flowing and the waterholes are all full.
This is a wet season trip. More information about bushwalking in the wet season
