About Red Hands Cave

Home to some of the best examples of Aboriginal Art in the Blue Mountains National Park, Red Hands Cave is full of stencils and hand prints, dating back between 500 and 1600 years ago. The Red Hands Cave Track takes you past axe grinding grooves near Camp Fire Creek, an unusual feature throughout several areas of the park. To create the artwork as featured throughout Red Hands Cave, Aboriginal people used their hands as a stencil, blowing a mixture of ochre and water from their mouths to create an outline, which have since been printed on the rocks for thousands of years.
