Wollemi National Park is one of the most rugged and wild parks of New South Wales, Australia. Since 2001, a team of archaeologists, Aboriginal community members and bushwalkers has discovered and documented hundreds of archaeological sites, many with magnificent drawings, stencils, paintings and engravings in sandstone rock shelters and on rock platforms.
Although they are believed to have been made hundreds and, in some cases, thousands, of years ago they remain significant for Aboriginal people today.
In this film the spitituality of some of the art, the Wollemi landscape and Aboriginal culture is explored through the thoughts and ideas sparked by visits of the most important sites, Eagles’s Reach and Gallery Rock.
In the process, a pilgrimage-like journey is undertaken with a strong conservation message.
