You can’t just walk around rock-art sites willy-nilly. Some depictions are so old and fragile that the slightest touch could cause irreparable damage. Instead, go with an Indigenous guide, whose cultural knowledge has been handed down by their forefathers over thousands of years. You can learn about hunting, food gathering, bush survival and bush medicine, and your guide may even take you along ‘hidden tracks’, unveiling stories and a fascinatingly different perspective on the country’s rich natural treasures.

Taking it at a lick is a way to kill your engine and shift boulders.
