What a great site! The Bunjil painting is impressive - different to other indigenous art sites I've visited and the only time I've seen the ancestor/creator spirit depicted. The painting was apparently defaced in the early 20th C (whitewashed over, apparently) and has been restored...More

Bunjils Shelter or Cave is a site of Aboriginal wall painting. It is quite close to Stawell. There is a car park, unisex toilet and nothing else but peace and flies. It is a huge shame that the actual artwork is now protected by an...More

This seems to have very few visitors, which is sad considering the amazing nature of this - could be thousands of years old! First rock art I've ever seen and it was incredible to think of the history this could represent. Only 100m from the...More

One of the most interesting aboriginal rock art paintings in Victoria, though not very large. There was nobody else visiting but it was pretty easy to find.
