Mount Grenfell Historic Site


Tours and Attractions

Located 67 km north-west of Cobar on the Barrier Highway, the Mount Grenfell Historic Site boasts some outstanding examples of Aboriginal rock art. The site’s three main rock shelters feature more than 1,000 images that depict human and animal figures painted with ochre, clay and other natural pigments. There are also some fine examples of hand stencils. At one time, these rock shelters were used as refuges by Aboriginal people, who were drawn here by the semi-permanent waterhole nearby.
