Oprah to visit Aboriginal rock art

Oprah to sing the praises of ancient Aboriginal rock art

By Lindsay MurdochOne of the destinations of Oprah Winfrey's Australian tour is stunning Aboriginal rock art that has been seen by only a few non-indigenous people.

Plans are being made to show Winfrey's worldwide audience a centuries-old Aboriginal shelter in a remote part of the Northern Territory's west Arnhem Land.

Discovered only three years ago, the site provides a fascinating insight into one of the world's oldest living cultures.

Since Winfrey announced last month that she would celebrate her farewell season by bringing The Oprah Winfrey Show to Australia, she has spoken of her wish to learn about Aboriginal people and their culture.

Oprah gets maternal:  Talk show host cuddles Aboriginal kids during trip to Australia

Yesterday Oprah visited Uluru (Ayers Rock) where she met with the natives and took a liking to two Anangu Aboriginal children.

Completely unaware that they were being hoisted up by a billionaire, the two youngsters seemed in awe with all of the attention and fanfare that travels with Ms Winfrey.
