Mutawintji Petroglyphs

Pecked into the sandstone with sharp implements millennia ago, the aboriginal petroglyphs, or rock carvings, at Mutawintji are thought to date back to over 8000 years. Mutawintji is an ancient landscape revered by the local Aboriginal people. The rugged, mulga-clad Byngnano Range is dissected by colourful gorges, rockpools and creek beds lined with red gums. Mutawintji is a protected national park that is located in the Far West region of New South Wales, in Eastern Australia.
