Description

Kwiambana ruins lie on and around a twin-peakod granite inselberg in what has been until very recently a relatively inaccessible area of the Kwiambana Game Reserve. The well-preserved mud structures are enclosed by a five to seven metre high bank and ditch which becomes a mud-block wall with loopholes where the circular town wall passes over bare rock, and is a natural coursed rubble wall along many other sections. There are some low free-stone walls enclosing the steep hillside, and several level sites where houses may have been constructed.
