Maiyingu Marragu Rock Art

Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley offers an exclusive and intimate tour where guests can embark on a bushwalking experience to explore the Maiyingu Marragu Rock Art and Cultural Site located on the Newnes Plateau above the Wolgan Valley.

The site includes culturally significant rock shelters and stencil-art produced from red, white and yellow ochres. The images depict many hands, a hatchet, a boomerang, as well as human figures. The cliffs, overhangs and natural features of this site hold special meaning to Wiradjuri people and contains sacred places reserved for important life events, such as childbirth. Maiyingu Marragu provides a direct physical and spiritual link to ancestors and a place where traditional culture can be maintained.

The area is extremely fragile and is sacred to the Mingaan Wiradjuri people. In the spirit of Yindyamarra and respect for the cultural values of the Wiradjuri community, it is strongly discouraged for people to visit this sacred place unless they are accompanied by an approved representative from the Wiradjuri community.

The tour involves a 30 minute 4WD each way and approximately 2.5 - 3 hours of walking to explore the various sacred sites. Advance bookings are essential for all tours as places are extremely limited.

For further information contact the lodge directly on, Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley.
