The Burrup Peninsula

The Burrup Peninsula (or Murujuga) is a unique ecological, spiritual and archaeological area since it possibly contains the world’s oldest, largest and most important collections of petroglyphs and ancient rock carvings.

The Burrup Peninsula is located on the north-western coast of Western Australia on the Dampier Archipelago.


All visitors must respect and follow the Murujuga general and cultural protocols for visitors.
