The Punda Art Site Rockhole

Reminder: Access to Punda is recommended for four-wheel drive only due to the sandy sections of the riverbed to cross. And clearance over rock is required. The Punda Art Site Rockhole is a beautiful destination for outings and overnight stay! Punda boasts its magnificent aboriginal rock carvings that cover an isolated hillside, permanent waters in a shady rock hole, and humongous cliffs that border a twist riverbed!

The rock carvings depict the different aspects of aboriginal life that include animals, human images with boomerangs, and water symbols. The site has views over the surrounding plains dotted with thousands of anthills! And the rock hole is about 5 kilometers from the rock carvings. And if you take a walk or drive upstream from the rock hole, you'll pass by many clear pools with abundant fish and birdlife.
