More than one million ancient rock engravings can be found simply by strolling around Burrup Peninsula, near Dampier. This ‘outdoor gallery’ has the highest concentration of rock art anywhere in the world. 

The Burrup Peninsula has special significance to the Ngarluma-Yindjibarndi, Yaburara-Mardudhunera and Woon-goo-tt-oo people, the traditional custodians of the land for 40,000 years. Good examples can be viewed at Deep Gorge, within walking distance of Hearson’s Cove and accessible to all vehicles. The beach also has barbecues, shelter and toilets, so sit a while, cast a line for coral trout, red emperor, scarlet sea perch, spangled emperor and norwest snapper, and contemplate the passing of time in a timeless landscape.
