Understanding through scientific research and Aboriginal knowledge the history of human habitation of Australia

Kimberley Foundation Australia has changed its name to Rock Art Australia

The name has changed but the objectives of the Foundation remain unchanged.  [Play the short film to capture our evolution]

Rock Art Australia will continue as an organisation dedicated to understanding through research and Aboriginal knowledge the history of human habitation of Australia. Research will remain multi-disciplinary and scientific and will always be in partnership with Aboriginal people.

The Kimberley’s rock art legacy will remain a primary focus but areas with rich rock art assemblages, also ancient but different from the Kimberley, contain valuable records that reveal Australia’s earliest history.

The change of name to Rock Art Australia reflects a growing awareness that rock art research can make a unique and substantial contribution to the history of Australia, the region in which we live and the narrative of global migration.
