Damien Finch, a PhD Student at the University of Melbourne and lead author of the new paper discussing how wasp nests show that the oldest-known rock art in Australia is a 17,300-year-old kangaroo in the Kimberley.

Gabe Waterman, new Manager of the Wik and Kugu Arts Centre talking about his new role. Aurukun Shire Council Mayor Keri Tamwoy said she was looking forward to seeing Aurukun’s artists create new carvings and painting for a series of upcoming exhibitions.
