laura

Laura is located 304km north-west of Cairns and 143km west of Cooktown. The country around Laura is one of Australia’s major sites for rock art, and is perhaps most famous for its rock galleries of images depicting the giant Quinkan spirit figures.

With a population of only 80 people it is one of the smallest Aboriginal communities in Cape York but is internationally renowned for its Dance Festival.
