Rockholes / kapi tjukula

Rockholes are a surface water feature where water is held in a rock or rocky area. Many rockholes in the Alinytjara Wilurara region are culturally important to Aboriginal Australians. Rockholes are also an important source of water for people and for native animals.

Another type of surface water found in the region is soaks. These are areas where water may be found because surface water has soaked into the ground or ground waters have risen close to the surface. One of the important soaks in the Alinytjara Wilurara region is Ooldea Soak.
