Sacred Canyon, Flinders Ranges, South Australia by 


Sacred Canyon is located in the south-eastern part of the park and forms a bed of the dry river.

It is one of the places in the Flinders Ranges National Park where you can explore some nice examples of the Aboriginal Art. Comparing to other similar places, Sacred Canyon offers images that were engraved onto the stone surface, not painted with ochre or charcoal.

Most of the engravings look like a series of circles and lines and represent a camp site, spring, water hole and etc. Among these lines, images of animal tracks and human-like figures can be found (look closely at the the rock-face to the left of the tree).

The age of these petroglyphs is not known, but local aboriginal people believe that they were created by ancestral beings during a Dreamtime.
