Quinkan Reserves Ancient Rock Art

Laura,

Famous for its rock art, Quinkan Country contains a large and dramatic body of prehistoric rock paintings. These galleries have been identified as being at least 15000 to 30000 years old and have been included on the Australian Heritage Estate and listed by UNESCO as being among the top 10 rock art sites in the world. People from many countries visit this remote location to view the rock art and gain some understanding of the Aboriginal stories associated with this magnificent sandstone landscape.

The paintings and engravings in the numerous Galleries are a pictorial record of ancestral spirits and through them represent the laws, socialisation, spirituality and cultural practices that are at the core of Aboriginal life and identity and their connection to the land. Rock Art from the region provides an amazing pictorial record of Aboriginal integration with the Australian landscape for a period of at least 27000 years.

People visit these sites to develop an understanding of the Aboriginal stories associated with the sandstone landscape of the region. This landscape features many areas of weathered and eroded rock that has shaped this wondrous landscape into the escarpments, rocky outcrops hills, and the river valleys that are seen today.
