The walk is well signposted for all levels of access. The aboriginal paintings are very educational but I am not sure they will be there much in the future as the wet and hot weather is definitely eroding the paintings.

Took my breath away. How lucky we are to be able to see this amazing history. I was moved. We spent a long time just soaking it all in. Wet season didn’t affect our enjoyment at all.

Walking by the many drawings on the rocks and listening to the different explanations these paintings become more interesting. However, I somehow had expected a better conserved quality, whiich of course is asking too much for thousands of years. Later we learned that many of...More

Words cant describe this place. It is spectacular to look at, rocks rising out of the plains. The art-work is amazing....and to think that people have been living here for 20-60,000 years....worth a visit and plenty of refection.
