Mulgowan (Yappa) Aboriginal Art Site Walking Track

Natural Attractions

For an outback adventure that’s bound to inspire, head for Mulgowan (Yappa) Aboriginal Art site walking track in Gundabooka National Park, near Bourke. Be amazed by the fascinating Aboriginal rock art of the Ngemba and Paakandji people, set amongst unspoilt bushland. It’s an unforgettable ‘off the beaten track’ experience for all ages.

Following this challenging yet rewarding walking track along encompassing boulders, you might see hooded robins and pink cockatoos. Arriving at the enormous rock overhang, you’ll discover unique Aboriginal rock paintings that not only depict animal motifs, but dancers, hand stencils and hunting tools. The surrounding Gunderbooka Range and Mulareenya Creek is a significant area where ceremonies were held and the echoes of a vibrant Aboriginal culture can still be felt.

Take your time to soak up the tranquil setting before retracing your steps. If you’re keen to explore, try Bennetts Gorge picnic area walk or pitch your tent beneath the vast desert sky at Dry Tank campground or Yanda campground.
