30ks up a dirt track, we enoyed the both the short walk to the aborignal painitings and the longer circuit. We were we the only people there which made it a very serene experience. Nice views from the ridge top. The site is not that...More

The road out to the site is very rough. But once you arrive the cultural and wildlife makes it all worth while. Make sure you take aero guard and water. Picnic tables and toilets are out there.

A bit of a drive up a well maintained gravel road ( dry weather only) brings you to this gem of a reserve. Art sites are accessed via a short walk, the path paved in local rock. We were here after rain so the area...More

A place of historical and cultural significance worth visiting if you are interested in Australian indigenous history. It took an hour to get there from Cobar, 40km sealed and 33 km unsealed. The unsealed road was ok to drive on, even but rocky towards the...More

Just west of Cobar and 33km north is this historic site. The road is good but pretty rocky and fairly hard on the tyres. Caution is required on the road from wildlife and occasional rough conditions. Once at the site, the facilities are excellent with...More

Enjoyed the aboriginal art in the caves. Went on the full trip to the summit but in places markers are hard to find. The full green posts blend in with the environment too well at times. The climb was worth it, great views.

Its well worth the 100km return trip from Cobar for half a day or if your in a 4wd camping along the way

What a pleasant surprise to find this Aboriginal Art site. There is extensive artwork all very well protected by cages. Just note that it is about a 60km return drive on dirt off the Barrier Highway. There is no camping allowed at the site either.
