The Tombs Circuit track is located within the Mount Moffatt section of Carnarvon National Park. This is a remote park of wild and diverse landscapes. At more than 1000 metres above sea level, the Consuelo Tableland is the highest plateau in Queensland.
The Tombs Circuit track is a 5.8 kilometre circuit track leaving from the Visitor Orientation Area. It can also be walked as a 4.2 kilometre return track. More than 400 stencilled motifs (images) decorate the walls of a sandstone shelter below the bluff of sandstone known as The Tombs. The Tombs once contained burial chambers for local Aboriginal people. Skeletons were wrapped and bound in bark burial cylinders. Allow three hours to complete this walk of a difficult grade.
When visiting rock art at The Tombs, please remember that the art is very fragile and can be permanently damaged by touching-even accidentally. Dust kicked up by visitors can also damage the art, as fine dust particles stick to the rock surface, covering the stencils. Please enjoy a close look at the rock art while remaining on the boardwalks, which have been built to prevent damage to the rock art.
The Tombs Circuit track is managed by the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service. Please note that this map only shows an indicative start point for the walk.
