Tomb art site - Mt Moffat

Carnarvon National Park

More than 400 stencilled motifs (images) decorate the walls of a sandstone shelter below the bluff of sandstone known as The Tombs. The Tombs once contained burial chambers for local Aboriginal people. Skeletons were wrapped and bound in bark burial cylinders. Sadly, by the end of the 20th century, the site had been robbed of this material, leaving little evidence of an elaborate mortuary culture. Take a close look at the rock art from a boardwalk with seats.
