The beautiful white, red, brown and yellow ochre from these colourful cliffs was once a great trading resource for the aboriginal tribes of the region.

The spectacular Ochre Cliffs, just north of the tiny South Australian Outback settlement of Lyndhurst on the Oodnadatta Track, were once considered to be of the finest quality for use in aboriginal ceremonies.

The ochre was traded over a vast area as far away at Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory, into Queensland and south to the coast and to the Nullabor Plains.
