    I have heard of this amazing site before. I believe they had elaborate trade lines as far as the Kimberley. Not only that, but they were also downstream processing the eels, creating leather items etc. A community of 10,000 people, complete with a wide range of trades is an amazing achievement in any prehistoric community. This appears to have been an amazing and significant location. There should be no hesitation in classifying it as a world heritage area in my opinion.

    "Australia’s earliest known site of human occupation of the Australian coast has been discovered in a remote cave in Western Australia, pushing back the start date of Indigenous occupation to more than 50,000 years ago."
