Injalak Hill Rock Art

Injalak Hill, 5kms East of Gunbalanya, is a superb sandstone monolith, rich in rock art. It encompasses majestic panoramic views of the floodplains and the escarpment.

The art on Injalak Hill reveals facets of pre-estuarine, estuarine and contact periods identifying them as between 100 and over 8,000 years old.

Injalak Hill likely has had continuous occupation. In 1912, the Aboriginal Protectorate Baldwin Spencer noted people heading up the hill every evening with smouldering fire sticks. This would help explain why Injalak boasts such extensive galleries.
