Information

The track off the Connie Sue Hwy west to Point Lillian is well travelled and easy to negotiate. Follow the track until you come to a dead end. Here you will need to leave your vehicle and climb up a steep plateau and walk south some two hundred metres across the plateau to a gully that has a number of fantastic aboriginal art sites. It’s the only gully that has pine trees growing in it and you can see them protruding above the top of the plateau as you approach. Here you will find numerous overhangs with superb galleries of aboriginal art, including snakes, shields, circles, and lots of vertical lines. Wearing stout walking boots is highly recommended because of the rocky nature of the walk and climb.

Point Lillian was first reached by explorer Frank Hann on Wednesday 3 June 1903. In subsequent expeditions, Hann visited the location a total of eight times, the last being in September 2008 when Hann narrowly avoided being speared during a surprise attack by four native men.
