Code of Conduct

Rock art paintings are very old, fragile and easily damaged; they are a significant part of our heritage. Please help to preserve them.

  1. Do not touch the paintings. Your fingers leave sweat and oil marks on the rock which cannot be removed.
  2. Do not put any liquids on the paintings. They cause the paintings to fade.
  3. Do not make your own paintings or write your name on the rocks. This destroys the value of the paintings and spoils the experience of other visitors.
  4. Do not litter. Take your rubbish with you when you leave or use the trash bin provided.

Please also respect the traditions of neighbouring communities that protect the art, and ask permission before taking photos.
