Learning about Aboriginal Rock Art

Aboriginal Ranger Gerard Quayle explains the significance of traditional rock art in Mutawintji National Park, NSW

When I was visiting Mutawintji National Park, in outback NSW, I joined an informal tour led by Paakantji ranger Gerard Quayle, traditional custodian of the land. Going with him is the only way to get access to some beautiful examples of aboriginal rock art, including both engravings and paintings. Why is access restricted? As Gerard sits here he tells a tale about the block of rock that stands out next to him: it was carved out by vandals trying to steal it.
