Why this Hike

As one of the few Aboriginal Rock Art sites within the A.C.T. this hike through Namadgi National Park is certainly worth the walk. The shelter at Yankee Rock was found to have been used by aboriginal people for over 800 years and the rock art nearby is nearly 3,700 years old. The track is mostly flat, consisting of a gradual incline and is marked along its entirety until reaching the rock art site.

Track Notes & Overview

Starting from Yankee Hat Trailhead carpark just off Old Boboyan Road this hike is marked with white arrows and most of the track is quite flat being either boardwalks or light a gravelly surface. Along the way you will cross over Bogong Creek before continuing along the trail with a very gradual climb right to the Yankee Hat Rock Art Site. There is quite a bit of signage around this area and once you are done viewing you can return back along the trail to the carpark.
