Come on a guided rock art tour with our Uunguu Rangers and Traditional Owners through the Munurru Rock Art Sites at Ngauwudu (Mitchell Plateau). Listen to authentic cultural stories passed down to us from our ancestors, about Wanjina, Gwion, plants and animals.    

The art sites “show all the boss Wanjina and plants and animals as a record of the history of Lalai and we have been here for a long time…..Where the Wanjina put themselves is bang-ganan. It means the rocks with paintings on are bang-ganan, a strong foundation and you can’t take them out. They belong there. They look out over the country, they are protecting it. They are watching to see which people are coming.”  Eewaambood, Janet Oobagooma                     

Receive a Welcome to Country Smoking Ceremony as part of your guided rock art tour. This will keep you safe as you travel through our Country.
This is a wonderful opportunity to engage with our Uunguu Rangers and Traditional Owners as they share cultural knowledge and information on Uunguu plants and animals.
