This national park is only 5km from the town of damper (not to be confused with the damper Peninsula located north of Broome, about 900Km from the town of damper). Unfortunately, the plug on Deep Gorge exists well but it is not in the right region we are here in the PILBARA and not in the Kimberley (damper Peninsula)!!!! So I duplicate what I put in the plug DEEP GORGE: We voluntarily made a detour between Exmouth and the Karijini NP to spend a night in Karratha: The goal being to visit this site of petroglyphs (visibly one of the most important in Australia). We did not regret it! It's beautiful, with an incalculable number of engravings. The site does not seem to me quite highlighted given the quality of the petroglyphs and without any protection... The gas plants are ubiquitous on the peninsula. There is no card with the main engravings at the entrance of the gorge. So you have to open your eyes but you have to miss 90%, maybe even more... The path is not dangerous but it is really hot (it takes a lot of water especially with children). It seems preferable to visit in the late afternoon to have a light more suitable for photographs. Presence of many kangaroos in the throat. In conclusion:-Do not hesitate to pass to Karratha-damper just for this short visit (the interest of these 2 industrial cities is quite limited in itself). -although the number of comments is abnormally limited on Tripadvisor, in my opinion this is an invariably site for a visit to Australia. Still my admiration for the men who carved these rocks there are about 30 000ans.
As a local, this is one of my favourite places to visit over and over again. It never gets tired or old and is truly a wonderful insight to the traditional art of our custodial land owners. Both the t... more »
Murujuga has the largest collection of petroglyphs (rock art) in the world. The landscape itself is spectacular with massive hills made out of large red rocks. On these rocks there are approximately one million with images on them. Some of the rock art dates back 30,000 years. Images of extinct species such as mega fauna, thylacine, Tasmanian devils and fat tailed kangaroos can be found here. The best place to view the rock art is in Deep Gorge.
