Explore ancient rock art.
March 14, 2022
Located a one-hour drive inland from Cairns, the Davies Creek National Park (and nearby Bare Hill Conservation Park) is home to one of the largest Aboriginal rock art complexes in the region. The Bunda Bibandji rock art walking track is a two-kilometre loop that winds through an open forest dotted with pink bloodwood trees.
The track eventually widens to reveal several granite outcrops, with two rock art galleries featuring red and yellow ochre. This incredible artworks have been dated at over 3500 years old by James Cook University scientists, making this a particularly significant sacred area. We recommend taking a 4WD to get to this ancient art gallery.
