  • irrefutable scientific evidence that Murujuga rock art IS being destroyed by Burrup industrial emissions

Friends of Australian Rock Art (FARA) works to protect, preserve and promote Australian rock art in general, and in particular the petroglyphs found in the Dampier Archipelago (including Murujuga/Burrup Peninsula) in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

FARA acknowledges the traditional owners of country throughout Australia and their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respect to them and their cultures, and to the elders, present and past.

The Burrup Peninsula (or Murujuga) is a unique ecological, spiritual and archaeological area since it possibly contains the world’s oldest, largest and most important collections of petroglyphs and ancient rock carvings.

The Burrup Peninsula is located on the north-western coast of Western Australia on the Dampier Archipelago.

All visitors must respect and follow the Murujuga general and cultural protocols for visitors.
