  • This is not to be missed!! The rock is just beautiful without the art. Quietly sleeping amongst the arid landscape. The art is breathtaking. 10,000 years old!! To see the handprints!! The imagination ...  more »
  • 42 Km from the small town of CUE is a site of Aboriginal paintings of great beauty. It is unthinkable q' such a site is not more valued (when compared to for example Monkey Mia and his "show" of dolphins without great interest...) Considered by some as the second largest monolith after Uluru (which he is super hyped quite rightly) the WALGA rock through ages in the most complete anonymity. It is absent from all the tour guides (at least 7 guides that I have on the Australia). Of course, go through the Great Northern Hwy does not interest the tourists who often commute Perth - Denham - Exmouth - Karijini NP by "coastal" road (NW Coastal Hwy) and return by the same road... What a pity. The center of the PILBARA also has many things to offer including Walga Rock (also called Walgahna) with its cave paintings that I find much more beautiful than those of ULURU. The paintings, must not touch, are protected only by a simple string. All paintings are impressive. There is also a surprising ship which is obviously much more recent. Only regret the absence of a panel of explanation at the entrance to the site. Obviously, given the media coverage of the site, we had nobody during the 2 hours of the visit and cross as 3 cars between the ghost town of Big Bell and Walga Rock then back to CUE. Attention, in the summer the heat must be terrible (in September in the spring it was already very hot). There are no toilet or kiosk for a picnic, but it is possible to park the car in the shade of the trees. The presence of many birds in the trees and a variety of flowers of bush in this spring. To get to the Walga Rock, it is best to have an SUV. But as the gravel runway is very good, it is widely practicable in standard passenger car (if we don't drive too fast and that it is not raining). This visit alone entirely justifies a passage through the small town of CUE, where it is possible to spend the night in the friendly Guest House Queen of the Murchison. We're here in a hotel in typical outback, far from the hotels of the Ayers Rock Resort to ULURU. I already know what will remain engraved in your memory...
