Aboriginal Rock Art

A bush walker has found a gallery of 4000 year old Aboriginal rock art not far from Sydney*. The gallery is remarkable for the number of images that have been painted, and that there is NO graffiti scrawled all over it.

"They show humans and god-like human and animal composites, such as birds, lizards and marsupials - including an extremely rare depiction of a wombat." I'm looking for a photo of that one, ursulav

The cave is only a few miles from where the wollemi pines were found.

How cool is this?
