Rock art and engraving

Rock art and engraving

While visiting Aboriginal sites you will learn how our traditional styles of art were created over the generations and hear stories our ancestors possibly told their children a long time ago, one site we visit is an education site.

My people didn’t have to go far for anything, it was all provided for us in a very close vicinity.

We guarantee you will never look at our rock sites the same way again.
