Description

Be ready to be awed by what awaits you on this walk in Carnarvon National Park, as The Art Gallery contains some of the finest Aboriginal rock art in Australia.

Just over five kilometres from the trailhead, at the junction of Kamoloo Creek, a signposted access track leaves the main walking trail upstream of crossing number 10, providing a gentle climb to the escarpment base where the site is located.

Boardwalks, interpretive signs and seating facilities provide optimum conditions for visitors to appreciate this diverse range of Aboriginal artwork without endangering it.

This extensive gallery contains more than 600 stencils and 1,300 engravings. Aboriginal rock art on the sandstone overhangs is a fragile reminder of the Aboriginal people who used the gorge for thousands of years for ceremonies and rituals.
