Quinkan Country: An Introduction to the Rock Art of Laura, Cape York Peninsula
Located in southeast Cape York Peninsula, the area around Laura is a tangle of rugged plateau, hills, valleys and gorges that have remained largely undisturbed by contemporary impacts. The sandstone rockshelters and myriad watercourses of the region are central to the living Aboriginal culture of the area, and home to some of Australia’s most iconic rock art. This book includes images from many of the Quinkan art sites that would otherwise not be accessible to the general public, insights about the art from Elders and Aboriginal community members, and showcases some of the spectacular landscapes of the region. Proceeds from sales of this book go to the Laura Cultural Heritage Body to assist the Laura Rangers with protecting Quinkan Country.
