Inside Gabarnmung Rock Shelter
A small group of Oprah Show Ultimate Viewers took a trip to Arnhem Land and were allowed a rare look inside. Watch the video.
In spring 2010, Margaret Katherine, a Jawoyn tribal elder and traditional owner of the land on which the Gabarnmung rock shelter rests, took the extraordinary step of inviting a team of the world's top archaeologists and rock art experts to explore the cave and its paintings along with a trusted documentary crew filming Spirits in the Stone.
This side view of Gabarnmung shows where the main archaeological dig is taking place. The ceiling of this gallery is covered with thousands of paintings and the massive overhang is supported by slender sandstone pillars.
