Published on

These magical rock art tours in the company of Nugal-warra Elder and story-keeper Willie Gordon, are now listed as One of Australia's Ultimate Must-Do Experiences. Willie takes guests to his ancestral rock art sites, high in the hills outside Cooktown, Tropical North Queensland. Here he shares the stories and meanings behind the cave paintings, and the ancient philosophy which shows us how to engage the environment in order to better understanding ourselves.
