    I want to drive out and see the petroglyphs in the outback but need some advice. Rather than rent a four wheel drive are there group tours out to this area. Maybe even a recommended knowledgeable guide who might know some folklore from the area?

    Are you speaking of Quadirikiri cave and Fontein cave
    If so, the knowledgeable park rangers offer guided tours of both of these caves. I personally liked Quadirikiri better than Fontein.

    I plan to visit in mid May, all going well. I am excited about continuing my
    research for my writing about the native cultures that once lived there.

    Alway looking for good stories and folklore.

    And the Aloe Museum sounds good too. So much to see for such a small
    island. I love it.

    Wow there are some interesting items in those pictures. Tell me, how far does one have
    to go into the cave to see these wall drawings. I understand they are about 3000 years
    old, is that correct?

    I am doing some catch up reading on the Arawak Natives this weekend.

    Not sure on the age. I would do as much research as you can before arrival and then verify your facts with folks at the Archaeology Museum and Park Rangers when you arrive on the island.

    I posted in the Culture forum about the Archeology Museum I visited. Wow that was
    one of my favorite parts of my vacation. Plus I befriended some local professionals there. Hope the posting doesn't get too lost with all the food though. :-)

    I started a poll there so it should be easy to find. I welcome you taking the poll as it will
    assist me with the story I am writing for my publisher.
