Burrup Peninsula

Australia

Also known as Murujuga, or “hip bone sticking out,” this descriptively named peninsula off of Western Australia is home to some of the world’s oldest rock art. Scant rainfall on the Dampier Archipelago has allowed for impressive preservation of much of these ancient artworks, whose subject matter varies from detailed images of humans to anthropologically valuable representations of now-extinct animals.
