Paintings of Wandjini spirits, Raft Point

6 July 2006. At Raft Point, we climbed a steep slope to arrive at some rock overhangs where we could clearly see paintings of the Wandjini. Those who saw the opening ceremony of the Sydney Olympics would have seen a depiction of one of the Wandjini, named Namarali, along with tall, slender, tasselled Gwion-Gwion figures. The creator of the Sydney Olympics’ Namarali is the custodial heir to this area.
