Burrup Peninsula

The Burrup Peninsula is living proof of the 30,000 year history of the Indigenous people in the Pilbara and home to more than 700 Indigenous archaeological sites, including 10,000 rock engravings (petroglyphs). These petroglyphs are considered to be among the earliest examples of art in the world and occur at countless sites over a wide area, generally depicting anthropomorphic figures, fauna, animal tracks and abstract symbols.

These are unique and irreplaceable cultural resource for all Australians, please help preserve these sites for future generations, avoid touching or stepping on the art and do not mark the art in any way.
