An easy 1 hour drive from Cobar, 40km tar plus 30km reasonably graded dirt with a short section of corrugation. Plenty of wildlife about, nice picnic area with toilets. A pleasant walk to the rock art, it's a shame it's all had to be fenced...More

This site was excellent! The art site was easily reached from the car park along a well made & well signed path. The art works were behind protective mesh barriers but were awe inspiringly beautiful! Such a treat to see these ancient artworks!

The road out to the site is very rough. But once you arrive the cultural and wildlife makes it all worth while. Make sure you take aero guard and water. Picnic tables and toilets are out there.

A place of historical and cultural significance worth visiting if you are interested in Australian indigenous history. It took an hour to get there from Cobar, 40km sealed and 33 km unsealed. The unsealed road was ok to drive on, even but rocky towards the...More

Just west of Cobar and 33km north is this historic site. The road is good but pretty rocky and fairly hard on the tyres. Caution is required on the road from wildlife and occasional rough conditions. Once at the site, the facilities are excellent with...More
