Rock art at Walga Rock, a monolith 5 km around the base and 1.5 km long

Rock art at Walga Rock, a monolith 5 km around the base and 1.5 km long, a site of deep cultural and spiritual significance to Aboriginal people. In a rich gallery of paintings is one of a ship that was long thought to be an early sailing ship but recent research reveals it was the work of a probable pearl diver, Sammy Hassan, in 1917, and the ship is the SS Xantho.

Visitor on boardwalk looking at Aboriginal rock paintings in the Tombs, a sacred area used as a burial site by the Aboriginal inhabitants of the region.
Vandals and grave robbers had desecrated the spot by 1902 before archeologists had a chance to study them. But there is still some stencil art under a sandstone overhang, including some freehand paintings of kangaroo feet.
