  • Thank you Olga. I will now be visiting Wurdi Youang site on March the 20th Inshallah. Amazingly less than an hour outside of Melbourne.

    • That’s great David 🙂 Who would have thought an ancient site like this one would be just a stone throw away. Apparently there are several others in Australia that many don’t know about, in fact there is another interesting place maybe 16 hours drive from Wurdi Youang that I hope to publish soon.

      Feel free to keep us posted how your experience went.

  • What a great find Olga! Thanks so much for all the info you’ve been finding and adding, this is really amazing to see little by little all the different places in the world which have monuments aligning to these spiritual cosmic times of the year – it just brings a feel of awe and wonder, and brings even more home the point of importance of these celebrations.

    • I would have to agree with Geraldine. Great research. It makes me see and feel the connection that spans the earth and civilizations and eras, uniting people in the sacred spirituality of the sun. The Wurdi Youang site sounds interesting and exciting.
