Starting from Yankee Hat Carpark off Old Boboyan Road, Rendezvous Creek, this walk takes you to the Yankee Hat Rock Art Site and back, crossing the Bogong Creek on the way. A group of kangaroos will probably welcome you at the opening near the start, so don’t forget to salute them back as you move towards Bogong Creek. After you head into the pine woodland of Namadgi National Park, you’ll start seeing the exquisite paintings and art created by the Aboriginal People. You can study them, take pictures and try to guess what the different shapes and colours mean. You may also see pretty wildflowers throughout the track, so keep an eye out for them. You may need a 4WD vehicle that has good clearance, as the route to the start point can get muddy and partially flooded after heavy rain. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
