National Parks & Reserves

Aboriginal Sites

Many national parks contain Aboriginal sites, places and relics including rock engravings, rock art, fish traps, carved trees, stone arrangements and spiritual sites. These sites are significant to Aboriginal communities because they are a direct link with traditional Aboriginal culture.

Aboriginal sites and places can be very fragile due to constant weathering and natural erosion.

How you can help

When visiting an Aboriginal site or Place you can help protect it by:

  • leaving rocks, artefacts and vegetation as you find them;
  • avoiding hand or foot contact with the site;
  • not regrooving or chalking the site or drawing on it; and
  • avoiding placing water or sand on the site:
