Description

The Arnhem Land plateau is an ancient and forbidding landscape of layered sandstone, cut deeply by gorges and crevasses. Remote and rugged, it is one of the most inaccessible and least disturbed environments left on earth.Aboriginal people have lived here for more than 60,000 years – their extraordinary artistic record, adorning the walls and ceilings of thousands of rock shelters, is unparalleled.
