N’Dhala Gorge Nature Park is located 90 kilometres East of Alice Springs, via the Ross Highway and is accessable by four-wheel drive only. This shady gorge contains a wide range of rock carvings and paintings. There are well over 6,000 individual petroglyphs (prehistoric carvings) as well as art sites and shelter sites. One way that Petroglyphs were created was by holding a sharp stone against the rock and striking it with a heavier stone.

The petroglyphs are either of the finely pecked or the pounded varieties that are thought to represent two different time periods. In addition to being culturally significant, N'Dhala Gorge is noted for containing rare plants such as the peach-leafed poison bush and the Undoolya wattle.

N’Dhala Gorge Nature

The petroglyphs are of two styles, the finely pecked and the pounded. They possibly represent two time periods.It is difficult to estimate the age of the art. Most were probably done within the past 2,000 years, but some could be as old as 10,000 years. Aboriginal custodians for the site, now living in Santa Teresa, indicate that some of the designs are connected with a Caterpillar Dreaming story.
