A woman who went into a restricted area to pose for a social media snap touching ancient rock art has been fined hundreds of dollars.

The woman is one of a number of people fined $431 for touching the rock art sites at Carnarvon National Park, located near Roma in central Queensland, which are of international importance.

'The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service makes no apology for taking compliance action against people who break the rules because they believe they are influencers,' Senior Ranger Luke Male said in a statement.

Park rangers have fined six people for going into restricted areas to snap selfies

'Some visitors to Carnarvon National Park think the rules don't apply to them, and they're entering Restricted Access Areas to pose for photos,' Mr Male said.

'In some instances, they are posing in front of Indigenous rock art that is thousands of years old, or they're actually touching it.'

In the last year, six fines have been issued for going into Restricted Access Areas to take selfies or touch the rock face.

In the same period, 18 fines have been issued for various other offences including camping in a protected area and fire offences.

'People have to understand that the Traditional Owners remain connected to this place and the rock art within it, and they regard the entire Carnarvon National Park as cultural site.

'The artwork on the sandstone walls of Carnarvon Gorge is part of what makes Carnarvon National Park such an iconic and much-loved national park.
