The Kimberley Cave is considered sacred by the aborigines, in which the enigmatic Wandjina are represented, which are cave paintings of mythological beings associated with the creation of the world.

The traditions of Australian Aboriginal people ensure that the paintings left in their caves and rock walls were not created by their ancestors, but by strange visitors.

Australian aborigines believed that, long ago, the Earth was soft and had no shape.


The characteristics of the landscape were the result of the acts of the Wandjina, who created rain, rivers, water wells and built the mountains and plains.

They also created the first humans, called “gyorn gyorn”.

Legend has it that the Wandjina taught the aborigines how to hunt, fish, how to build and use weapons and also gave them laws and ceremonies.

When they finished their work, some of these Wandjinas returned to the Milky Way, while others crossed the rocks of the Kimberley cave, from which they observed the evolution of the gyorn gyorn.

The most interesting thing about aboriginal traditions is that, before the Wandjinas disappeared, they decided to portray themselves on stones so that men would not forget their presence. These paintings are considered to be self-portraits of their gods.

Some people claim that these light-skinned beings were actually Caucasian-looking men who had landed in Australia around 60,000 years ago.

If so, this would be the possibility that an unknown human species with great ancestral knowledge could anchor in northwestern Australia, come into contact with aboriginal tribes and pass on part of their wisdom, as well as the myths of different cultures around the world.
