Visited the area very early morning, had a great time walking around. Early or late walks are nice and avoiding mid day heat is best. Spotted lots of "friendly" wild life and kept an eye out for the "unfriendly" as warned. Being able to camp...More

Interesting. Long drive on unsealed road - avoid driving it at dusk as there were lots of kangaroos. More interpretations of the art work would be helpful. Landscape was quite beautiful and distinctive; very different to surrounding area. Good facilities, and well marked walking trail.

Take some time to explore and do the walking trails/tracks and take in the scenery, make sure you take plenty of water. The paintings are a short walk from the entrance area.

This site was excellent! The art site was easily reached from the car park along a well made & well signed path. The art works were behind protective mesh barriers but were awe inspiringly beautiful! Such a treat to see these ancient artworks!

The road out to the site is very rough. But once you arrive the cultural and wildlife makes it all worth while. Make sure you take aero guard and water. Picnic tables and toilets are out there.
