Rock art is a marking of the landscape with imagery that endures for many generations and through the millennia. For many Indigenous cultures around the world, rock art is the only surviving record of both the intentionality of communication and intergenerational knowledge transfer of our earliest symbolic endeavours. Australian Aboriginal rock art is extensive and includes extreme and rich diversity. There are a number of identified regions where researchers are developing rock art chronologies. The last decade has seen an efflorescence of research and new ideas about Australia’s rock art, particularly in its northwest. This scientific endeavour has been matched by increased engagement with the Indigenous owners of this art – and new understandings of this globally important heritage.
