A ROCK platform in the heart of the Wollemi wilderness may be the closest thing Australia has to Mount Olympus, the "seat of the gods" of Greek mythology.
Last spring archaeologists discovered an enormous slab of sandstone 100 metres long and 50 metres wide in the 500,000-hectare Wollemi National Park, which is north of Lithgow, in western NSW. The sandstone was covered in ancient art.
A gallery of rock art, dating back to when Stonehenge was being built and before China was a unified empire, has been found in Wollemi National Park. The site is covered in 203 drawings in 12 layers built up over time and, for the most part, the illustrations are 4,000 years old. The superimposed layers are pristine and in various colours of red, yellow, white, charcoal and black.
Archaeologists surveying rugged bushland outside Sydney have discovered evidence that an ancient Aboriginal Dreaming track runs through wilderness where the Jurassic-era Wollemi Pine was found.
Dreaming tracks record the journey of spirit ancestors as they moved through the landscape, transforming ancestral lands and laying down the laws.
