Description

The Ngaro people have walked this land for over 9,000 years. Protected from the elements in a once-hidden cave, Ngaro artwork adorns the fragile rock surface.

The track begins deep inside Nara Inlet on Hook Island — an excellent overnight anchorage. Short and initially steep, the stepped track leads up the side of the inlet to a viewing platform at the cave's entrance. Allow at least an hour to immerse yourself in the Ngaro cultural stories of the site.

Other Information

How To Get There:
The Whitsunday islands are readily accessible by boat from Airlie Beach or Shute Harbour, east of Proserpine in central Queensland. By road the area is about 12 hours north of Brisbane and eight hours south of Cairns. Follow signs on the Bruce Highway to Airlie Beach. Most roads in the region are suitable for conventional vehicles.

The Ngaro Cultural Site is located at the end of Nara Inlet on Hook Island, a favoured bareboat anchorage. Refer to the guide book 100 Magic Miles, if you have a chartered boat, for details of public moorings and how to access the walking track.
