You may know it's sacred to the Aboriginal people here, and that it turns some spectacular colours at sunrise and sunset. You might not know that you can experience it through Aboriginal eyes, or that there are many other sacred and breathtaking sites here in Australia's vast centre. Uluṟu's cousin Kata Tjuṯa is just 40 kilometres away and you'll find the awe-inspiring Kings Canyon not far from Alice Springs. You might not realise that this landscape has green vegetation and lush waterholes as well as dusty red roads and huge slabs of rock. And what you won't really understand until you get here is the magic, majesty, silence and splendid isolation of Australia's Red Centre.

Napwerte Ewaninga Rock Carvings Conservation Reserve

Old South Road, 39 kilometres south of Alice Springs, Alice Springs Area,
Alice Springs, Northern Territory 0870

Napwerte Ewaninga Rock Carvings Conservation Reserve protects petroglyphs - rock engravings made by the early Arrernte Aboriginal people.
The six-hectare reserve is 39 kilometres south of Alice Springs, and offers visitors a new understanding of an ancient culture. Follow the marked walking track 680 metres to view the best petroglyph sites. Keen photographers should time their visit for early morning or late afternoon, when shadows make the shallow engravings more obvious. These are also the coolest times of the day for walking during the summer. The petroglyphs feature a range of different symbols or motifs, the meanings of which are sacred. The exact age of the petroglyphs is not known. The small claypan in which the petroglyphs were carved is a natural bowl that traps and holds scarce rains, making it a suitable site for longer stays by early nomads. After rain there would be water and game here, which meant time to tap a record of important beliefs into the soft sandstone. Arrernte custodians ask visitors to respect the site - do not climb over the rocks, touch or interfere with the petroglyphs in any way. The Arrernte custodians ask that Arrernte women do not enter this site.

The reserve marks the original site of the Alice Springs settlement, which took its name after the waterhole a short distance to the east of the station. The Station operated for 60 years, then served as a school for Aboriginal children. Located 4 kilometres north of Alice Springs, the reserve is accessible by two-wheel drive vehicle. There's a shared walking and cycling track into the reserve from the Stuart Highway and the Todd River. Entry to the reserve is free but an entry fee applies to the historic precinct.
