Finally after several years found the cave paintings west of Wandandian NSW (location will not listed). I was originally told about them by an old timber cutter. The caves visitors book was there in a tin box with less than a hundred names since 1994 has any body else on this site seen them?

Question some cave painting sites I have been to, there is a brass dot with number showing that the paintings have been documented is this a standard practice or more a NT thing?

regards

I bet the caves were near fresh water, had nice comfy rocks to sit on, and a good view of anyone approaching.

Your the first person on this site I have seen show any interest in this fascinating subject.

Please post a picture.

Cheers,

Willie.

Hi Duck

The sites that I have seen in WA were that special that even the authorities in Perth were not aware of them. One site that we visited, we were only the third group of white people to see them and that was so special.

I also like finding evidence of past occupation right at your feet when looking around in the form of grinding stones, stone impliments etc, yet to the non trained eye, they are just pieces of stone.

There must be hundreds of such sites scattered around Australia just lost for ever.

You show some of your images and I will also show you some of mine.


Cheers

there is quite a few stone impliments about, as they are special places & the only one that I have herd about in my local area, this is the reason I did not give the location. twice in the past I would have been within 20mtrs of them & mist the overhang/cave completely & if they can stay without any track to them the better

Hi Duck, if there's a visitors book then why the big secret? Are they off limits for some reason or other?..... W

No not off limits, but there not that we'll known & the longer they stay that way the less chance of them being vandalised & hopefully people that do the research to find them will appreciate them & those who take friends will hopefully share the same
Just so sick of seeing areas that were pristine or special trashed or vandalised or just locked out by gov
