Students were given a guided tour by the National Parks and Wildlife Services and were able to view Aboriginal rock art and engravings.  This site is a very special site to the Gamilaroi people and the students learned about bush tucker and the use of plants in marking spears and other tools.  They were also able to view rocks that were used to sharpen and produce rock tools.  A special thanks to Mr Johnston for driving the bus and Mrs Stanton for organising the event.
