Wurre / Rainbow Valley Conservation Reserve ~ Images of Australia

Be Prepared When Walking
All walkers should wear a shady hat, sun block and sensible footwear and clothing on all walks. It is essential to carry plenty of drinking water, particularly in warm weather.

Avoid strenuous activity in the heat of the day. If walking ‘off-track’ for any distance avoid walking alone and always notify a reliable person of your route and intended time of return.

Survival in a harsh land
The Rainbow Valley Conservation Reserve forms part of the traditional lands of the Southern Arrernte people. Their association with the region stretches back many, many thousands of years, as is evident from numerous sites that include evidence of rock shelters and camping places, providing evidence of grinding stones and stone tool chips. Also around the hills and ridges are numerous rock engravings or petroglyphs and rock paintings, some are faded due to exposure to the environment, but can often be seen under the right environmental conditions. The best way to view this history is through a guided tour with the descendents of the original traditional owners.

Immediately to the south of the main rock formation stands a large rock massif, known as ‘Ewerre’. This outcrop, together with the surrounding 50 m, is a registered sacred site, of deep significance to the southern Arrernte Aboriginal people. You are asked to respect their culture and beliefs and do not photograph this area or remove any rocks.
