Western Australia’s Murujuga National Park is home to a wealth of rock art, with more than one million images throughout the region.

The art reflects 47,000 years of human existence and traditional use of the area over this time.

A recent discovery by two guides from Ngurrangga Tours during low tide has excited archaeologists. The carving of kangaroo feet is usually underwater, and is thought to be the first of its kind to be discovered in Australia.
