Painting bush tucker

Join local Aboriginal artists and rangers to paint traditional x-ray art.

X-ray art dates back over 8000 years and is one of the many styles of rock art found in Kakadu National Park.

X-ray art depicts the bone structures and internal organs of people and animals – usually food animals such as barramundi, kangaroo and turtle. The x-ray techniques produce a three-dimensional effect and some very striking artworks.

Come along to the Bowali Visitor Centre to learn about bush tucker and traditional painting before having a go at your own piece of x-ray art.
