Quinkan and Regional Cultural Centre

The excellent Quinkan and Regional Cultural Centre in Laura has interesting and informative displays about the Aboriginal and European heritage of the area. More importantly, it is the place to book tours to some of the area’s extraordinary rock-art sites, including Split Rock, Mushroom Rock, Giant Horse and the Quinkan Galleries, listed by UNESCO as among the top 10 rock-art sites in the world. The galleries are believed to be 15 000 to 30 000 years old. Rock-art tours run from late-March until early-December.
