Friends of Australian Rock Art
31.jpg

Friends of Australian Rock Art (FARA) was formed in November 2006
in response to concerns by the West Australian National Trust with
regard to a lack of government interest in protecting the Dampier
Archipelago, particularly the Burrup Peninsula (Murujuga), from
vandalism and deterioration due to uncontrolled industrial
development.

The organisation has since grown to become a respected independant,
incorporated association that focuses on raising awareness of the
threat to rock art on the Dampier Archipelago, especialy with regard
to industrial development on the Burrup Peninsula

All of FARA's activities are undertaken by volunteers who are
passionate about the PROTECTION, PRESERVATION and PROMOTION
(PPP) of rock art, Particularly that of the Dampier Archipelago, and
the Burrup Peninsula.

There have been some real successes along the way, with many
more people now aware of how important the rock art of the
Dampier Archipelago is to humanity.

HIGHLIGHTS:
An international campaign titled "Stand Up For The Burrup",
which has drawn the world's attention to the plight of the Burrup
Peninsula's rock art.
