Mount Grenfell Rock Art Site

Mount Grenfell Historic Site is located in west of NSW, approx. 50 kilometres west of Cobar, 760 kilometres north west of Sydney.

The site features hundreds of Aboriginal paintings in reds, yellows and ochres colour under the rock overhangs at Mount Grenfell. A semi permanent waterhole provided an ideal meeting place for local Aboriginal groups who painted linear paintings, human figures, birds, mammals, reptiles and stick figures onto the rock face.

More About Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself! Text by Steve Smith.
