The Wandjina (sometimes Wondjina) are cloud and rain spirits from Australian Aboriginal mythology that are depicted prominently in rock art in Australia. Some of the artwork in the Kimberley region of Western Australia dates back approximately 4000 years ago.

The stories of the Wandjina and the artwork depicting them remain important to the Mowanjum Community of Indigenous people.
