Aboriginal Painting 2

An archaeological dig at Anbangbang rock shelter in the early 1980s revealed that Aboriginal people have been using the shelter for at least 20 000 years.

Kakadu National Park is renowned for the richness of its Aboriginal cultural sites as there are more than 5000 recorded art sites illustrating Aboriginal culture over thousands of years. The archaeological sites demonstrate Aboriginal occupation for up to 40 000 years.
