Aboriginal Paintings in Kakadu...

I wrote about our day trip to Kakadu in my previous post, but I decided to write a separate post on the Aboriginal painting that we saw there...






This fellow sounds a bit scary!






 The car park was overlooked by this big bluff...

Interesting rock formations near the carpark...

 I've read somewhere that the discovery of these paintings really 'sealed the deal' that this area would be designated a National Park. The paintings were really spectacular!

How fascinating, Maria. I have never been there.

Very interesting. They certainly have been well-preserved. I think I recognized a kangaroo and a fight or battle scene.

Hello Maria
Reading you trip posts has been bringing back memories of a similar one we did in 1992 - We visted the same places only difference was the Ghan only went as far as Alice. Taking the car on the back of the train meant we could drive on up to Darwin and then very slowly over a few weeks drive ourselves home
Thanks for bringing back those memories

These paintings are amazing. I'm glad it's been made a National Park. You really have a fascinating history there :)
