Fodor's Expert Review Ewaninga Rock Carvings Conservation Reserve
More than 3,000 ancient Aboriginal rock engravings (petroglyphs) are etched into sandstone outcrops in Ewaninga Rock Carvings Conservation Reserve, 39 km (24 miles) south of Alice on the road to Chamber's Pillar. Early-morning and late-afternoon light are best for photographing the lines, circles, and animal tracks. A 2-km (1-mile) trail leads to several art sites. The reserve is open all day year-round and is accessible by regular (rather than four-wheel-drive) cars.
