Bradshaw Paintings

abo1Another night in the National Park, leaving early the next morning  and although the road was in the process of being graded, it still had some rocky parts and was a very bumpy ride.We stop at an aboriginal rock painting area just before we got to the main road. The paintings date back 60,000 years which is at least five times older than the Egyptian pyramids. According to Indigenous legend, the paintings – discovered by Joseph Bradshaw in 1891 – were created by birds using their tail feathers.  The place itself had a very peaceful and serene feeling, it would have been great to spend a lot more time there.
