Ngarrabullgan is a large tabletop mountain about 100km west of Cairns. It is the oldest cultural site we know people have used in Queensland. Scientists think that people have been using the rock shelters called Ngarrabullgan Cave and Nonda Rock for at least 40,000 years. Still today it is a sacred place for the traditional owners, the Kuku Djungan people. Many people for hundreds of kilometres around have stories about this place.
