Ngaro territory spread across the mainland and islands for some 520km2. South Molle Island was an important quarry for materials used in stone manufacture, and Nara Inlet on Hook Island has ancient paintings in a cave of which can still be viewed from a platform by any bareboat charterers visiting. The incredible cave paintings found in Nara Inlet are often presumed to be pictures of their food sources including hashed oval shapes representing a Sea turtle shell a prominent food for the Ngaro people and Australian natives on the mainland, others envision pandanus plant and its seed.
