In the heart of Western Australia, the Burrup Peninsula hosts the largest concentration of rock art in the world. It's a dramatic, ancient landscape so sacred that some parts shouldn't be looked upon at all except by Traditional Owners.

Waves of industrialisation and development threaten sites all over the Pilbara. The Burrup has become home to salt mines, iron ore port facilities, and one of Australia's largest gas plants, but the people of the Pilbara, forever connected to their country, forever responsible, are fighting back – documenting the rock art, recording their sacred sites and battling to get their unique cultural heritage recorded, recognized, and celebrated.
