Aboriginal Heritage

Hundreds of occupation and rock art sites revealing the ancient life of the local Wiradjuri and Wannaruah people have been found throughout the Hunter Valley and surrounding bushland. Rock engraving sites can be visited just south of the Hunter Valley at Finchley (see Hawkesbury Valley region). The Biame gallery in Hunter Valley Gardens at Pokolbin is a window into the thriving contemporary Aboriginal culture. As well as traditional and contemporary Aboriginal arts and crafts, the gallery also offers cultural programs and tours for groups.
