End Date

Murujuga/the Dampier Archipelago, situated in WA’s Pilbara area, is both one of the world’s most important archaeological sites and a major sacred site for the Aboriginal custodians. Containing the largest group of prehistoric petroglyphs (rock engravings) found anywhere in the world, it also displays the only continuous record of humankind’s survival over c50,000 years in a dramatically changing environment. Awarded National Heritage listing in 2007, it has recently been nominated by the Australian government and Murujuga Aboriginal Corporation for UNESCO’s World Heritage listing. This is only the second Australian Aboriginal cultural landscape to date to attract such an award, after the Budj Bim fish trap complex in Western Victoria.

Join our celebration as featured contemporary indigenous and non-indigenous artists reveal their response to the power and mystique of this unique place, Murujuga.
