Within Carnarvon National Park, Tombs Circuit walking tracks lead from the orientation area to unusual rock pillars and an Aboriginal art site. The track passes the Chimneys, three pillars of rock that have been separated from the narrow end of a small bluff of Precipice Sandstone, where water has eroded down vertical fractures. Beyond the Maranoa River the sandstone bluff known as The Tombs shelters more than 400 stencilled Aboriginal motifs.
The Tombs once contained burial chambers for local Aboriginal people. Take a close look at the rock art from a boardwalk with seats. Continue along the circuit to the Looking Glass, where wind has eroded a cave right through an isolated sandstone pillar standing by the Maranoa River. The Park is also noted for its birdwatching opportunities with at least 172 species recorded.Visit Website
