How is Rock Art used?


• To communicate


• To pass on knowledge first hand and across generations


• To express identity


• To express relationships to the land, other people and other species


• To record history and events


• To make connections to the land


• To make connections to people who came before


Four simple reasons why rock art is so important:

• It truly is our nation’s crown jewels


• It’s an utterly unique visual archive of Australia’s history going back at least 15,000 years


• It gives us a clear window back into our recent and ancient pasts


• It is valued by the Indigenous groups from remote Arnhem Land to capital cities
