Australian Aboriginal Rock Art Gallery

Would you like to see ancient rock art in Queensland?

It’s no secret that Australian Aboriginal rock art galleries are among the best ancient rock art galleries in the world.

Now you have a chance to see a previously little-known Aboriginal rock art gallery featuring thousands of ancient paintings and etchings has opened, right here in Queensland.

In 2020, the gallery at Gracevale Station near Aramac in western Queensland opened to the public, just a year after being returned to its traditional owners and renamed Turraburra.

Now the local Iningai people are planning to create a multimillion-dollar education centre at the site.   

This Queensland rock art gallery joins about 100,000 sites Australia-wide, such as the Kakadu National Park, The Kimberley, and the Flinders Ranges.

Australia’s rock art galleries date back 30,000 years or more and attract thousands of tourists every year.

In 2012, I was fortunate enough to join a tour of Gracevale Station and Gray Rock with Artesian Country Tours, which has since folded. This photo gallery shows some of my images from that tour.
