Aboriginal Art in Northern Queensland, Australia

Well, it's certainly a long way from NYC but here we are in North Eastern Australia in search of the real deal: authentic aboriginal rock art, that is. Well, after being inundated with innumerable "aboriginal" art galleries in all of the tourist centers, I finally got to see some of the actual rock art in situ. I imagine it's almost like seeing the cave paintings at Lascaux in France or Altimara, Spain (also on my list of things to see).
While there has been little of worth to see in any of the "galleries" in Port Douglas, Cairns, Palm Cove or in the Daintree Village, Mother Nature has provided us with more wildlife than I have seen in a lifetime.
