Burrup Peninsula rock art

Believed to have the largest number of petroglyphs (rock engravings) on a single site in the world, the Burrup Peninsula holds up to a million ancient symbols across its deep, red rock surfaces. Industries in the area have moved some of the rocks, and other areas of the peninsula are threatened by further development. Some tour operators and other groups (such as the Friends of Australian Rock Art) occasionally conduct tours that visit the area, but as there is nothing regular, you may have to explore this incredible site on your own.
