Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It was good to see some petrographs on the rocks although some we couldn't work out. It was great to see. I think we were spoilt as we have seen better ones and more numerous at other places in the world

In the Burrup Peninsula, following Hearson Cove Rd, about one kilometer before the end of the road, the car park of the Murujuga Cultural Landscape is on the right. From the car park there is a 700m loop that is easy and accessible to all. There are no toilets at this site. At the beginning of the trail there are explanatory signs where, among other things, it is stated not to photograph human figures. On the red rocks of the Ngajarli (Deep Gorge) there are in fact many petroglyphs, expression of the local aboriginal culture. These rock engravings would have been made over a period of at least 47,000 years and thus represent a vast archaeological record. More or less clearly recognizable you can see figures representing human beings and many Australian animals, even extinct. In the flat area in front of the rocks there are very beautiful and intensely colored wild flowers. Having completed the visit at sunset, the intensity of the color of the red rocks was impressive, first in contrast with the blue sky and then with the variation of solar lighting. A must-see place for anyone traveling through this part of Australia.

Amazing experience of the ancient rock art. Easy to get to from Karratha, and good access. Best to use a local guide to explain the deep significance of the areas and point out the carvings. You can’t come go Karratha and not come here.

Had a tour with Leann and Dale from the Murujuga Rangers. Excellent knowledge of the area, rock art, history, flora and fauna. There was only two of us and they came all the way out to give us a tour! Can’t stress how incredible the place is. Definitely recommend. Keep up the good work!

If you are going through Karratha make sure you take the time to go to Murujuga National Park and check out the Rock Art at Ngajarli. It is mind blowing just to think that many are 40 000 years old and that there could be over a million of them! It is very easy to feel the spiritualism in a place like this. There is now a boardwalk and interpretive signage points to explain the significance and point out the artworks.

The only difficultly we had was finding the way to the Trail. There are no signs so follow the signage to Hearson’s Cove. I’ve requested a tag now on google maps as Ngajarli Art Viewing Trail but just in case from Karratha Road, turn left onto Dampier Road, right onto the Burrup Peninsula Road and right at the turnoff to Hearson Cove (google maps took as further on to whoop whoop). From here, measure ~2.2km and turn right onto the gravel road.

There is a parking area and then you walk over to the trail. It’s not a long trail (in fact quite short) but there is a lot to see so take water, it is hot out there! Murujuga has now been added to the Tentative World Heritage List too. There are tours in the morning and afternoon but the timings didn’t work for us. I think they would be really informative as I’m pretty sure we would have missed seeing many that can be pointed out as well as the cultural knowledge. It just seemed the more you looked the more you saw! One of my fave parts of our North West trip.

Lovely stop, all just reopened today and the boardwalk and signage now make it easy to navigate even with very young children. It was a little hard to make out some of the art in the morning sun, think perhaps late arvo would be the best but it was definitely well worth a wonder. Allow 30min to have a easy stroll.

As a local, this is one of my favourite places to visit over and over again. It never gets tired or old and is truly a wonderful insight to the traditional art of our custodial land owners.
Both the tours with Experience Murujuga and Ngurrangga are TOTALLY worth it... Really really fantastic information that will not be learnt anywhere else.

This is a fascinating park! It looks as if a huge cloud rained down piles of red boulders into massive hills. It's easily accessible by car. You can park and be spotting all the petroglyphs within a short hike. There isn't much of a path really so expect to be climbing over some rocks... not suitable for pushing a stroller at all.
It was interesting to see the kangaroos hopping up the hills with no problem at all. They leap from rock to rock so easily.
At first it was hard for us to spot the rock art but once you start finding them they seem to be everywhere. We were there for just a couple of hours since we had a baby with us but we got to see a fair bit.
