I recall seeing an article somewhere giving directions for the best of the rock art in the Calvert Ranges. A search of this forum & internet in general hasn't found it

Anyone know where i can find this article (or even better ... knows where the rock art is themselves!)

There are quite a number of articles on the Calvert Ranges to be found on Google.

THere are some pics in the ExploOz Gallery. Go to Pick this Place comp and look at previous places submitted in the comp.

I will be going out that way in early July this year.

Well after lots of searching on google I reckon there are lots of sites which mention the Calvert Range but very few with any detailed or useful information!!

Am getting Issue 55 of WA 4WDer as mentioned in reply below & will see if it is any good

The best galleries are on the western end including the rock carvings (just follow the dry creeks) although right along the northern cliffs there are plenty of excellent smaller displays. Spend a few days looking around.

Hi Drew,
We did the CSR in July-August 2004 and visited the calverton and the rock art is out of this world, particularly the "Petroglyphs" the main galleries of the art is found in the two gorgesyou walk east along the the gorge on the right and it is 15 min walk in and keep looking up to the right on the Siuth wall they are like huge murals on the rock face. A membe rof our trip placed an article in the WA 4 wd drive r magazine , 55th Winter edition 2005.
The track is south of Derba past cannings cairn turn East to Sunday well and carry on. From the CSR it is about 31 Kms and about 30 something sand hills.
A good map is one from the Aystralian Geographic.
The rock ar is awesome most bof the walls in the gorges are adorned with art, but those petroglyphs are way out of this world 50000 years old?

I had a look at the 'Canning stock route' map from Australian Geographic but nothing on it about the calvert Range. Are you referring to another map from Australian Geographic? (ie: has there been an article in Australian Geographic about the Calvert Range?)
