This short walk is well worth the hike to the old fire lookout to get a panorama perspective of the surrounding area. Here you get above the tree cover of the surrounding plains to get an overview of the area.

Rocky path, quite steep and you need to be able walk and climb. The view is worth the effort, but make sure you take some water with you and do the walk earlier in the day.

Great view, good steep walk up, easy walk back. Shady lookout tower up the top. Take plenty of water and a snack to enjoy the view. Again information panels were degraded and need replacement.

This walk was a bit disappointing. Long walk to top only to get there and there are trees everywhere blocking the view. Would not waste my time doing this again.

Mirrai Lookout was a steep walk but worth it with wonderful views all the way around. A quint little observation deck was at the top.

Perfect Sunset/ Sunrise spot Well worth the hike up. Slightly steep but manageable. Pack water, camera. Wear sun protection.

This lookout is nice enough but after some of the other places we saw in Kakadu it just wasn't as spectacular. Steep climb to the top where a very nice lookout structure allows you to enjoy the view under shade cover.

This is a nice short walk (1.6km) round trip from the car park. A bit rocky in sections, so if your not too steady on your feet, walking poles are handy. Take water, even though it's short, because it is uphill in the heat! Nice...More

Mirrai is just off the highway. It's approx 1km climb to the lookout. Gets your heart rate up but worth the view. Sunset is a must.
