Aboriginal Tourism - Indigenous Australia - Ochre

The imagery of the Aboriginal culture, as can be seen in many of the sacred sites, rock and cave paintings, used very few colours, as they were often made from what was available locally. The colours were often mined from 'ochre pits', being used for both painting and ceremonies. The ochre was even traded between clans and at one time could only be collected by specific men within the clan. Some of the ochre pits can be viewed today as tourist attractions.

Following are images of the Ochre Wall at Arkaroola in South Australia. Arkaroola is one of South Australia's star attractions, located in the magnificent Northern Flinders Ranges region.
