Restoring Rock Art
Ancient Rock Art is Under Threat
Victoria is home to hundreds of recorded Aboriginal rock art sites spanning more than twenty thousand years.
This ancient rock is suffering from extensive damage and critical steps need to be taken now to protect park environments and Aboriginal rock art in Victoria for future generations.
People and Parks Foundation is working with Parks Victoria and Traditional Owners to raise funds to put in place restoration and protection measures to ensure Aboriginal Cultural Heritage isn’t lost forever.
