Burial Tree at Euroka Clearing near Glenbrook in Blue Mountains, Australia

Euroka Clearing is a popular campground adjacent to Nepean River. There are 40 sites within five sections. It has few amenities. But what better way to experience tenting in the bush? This area was inhabited by the Aboriginal people for thousands of years. These carved trees at Appletree Flat are evidence of its continued importance. The Darug community calls this Nye Gnorang meaning Spiritual Place. They traditionally remove bark of a tree near a loved one’s grave and then carve in the family’s symbol or totem. To experience Aboriginal rock art, take a trail from Euroka Clearing to the Red Hands Cave. The handprints there date back 500 to over 1,000 years.
