Definitely 4wd road but even a novice like me can make it. Lovely area and walk. Some petroglyphs harder to spot than others but a trick is to open your camera on your phone and place over rock and the shapes are much easier to see. Look for tracks where others have walked for clues. Most low down.

Waterhole near end of walk filled with budgies and finches. Interesting 4WD - not recommended for towing but a light camper trailer would be ok. Drop loo.
