The paintings in the Yourambulla Caves were done by the Adnyamathanha people and while the age of the sites are unknown, they are at least several hundred, if not thousands of years old. They are protected by a cage - but photos can easily be taken through the very large mesh.
The whole reserve really is not suitable for the elderly, frail or those in prams or wheelchairs. The path is steep, littered with rubble and there are some points on the trail where climbing is necessary. There is a steep stairway at the first cave site, but those with average fitness and health will find the walk easy and pleasurable.
