An unusual engraving depicting a man striking a wallaby, on a small platform above a waterfall

A small engraving site above a small waterfall depicts man who is striking a wallaby: “they depict a man, below natural size, striking a wallaby with a boomerang, and a number of straight lines which probably belong to an unfinished figure. The site is an obvious habitat of rock and scrub wallabies but it is not possible to determine whether the hunter stalked and struck his victim, or whether he threw his boomerang…” (Fred McCarthy).

Just above the wallaby are some “unfinished” lines, which resemble a shield.

Close by is another figure not described by McCarthy, which is a very faded engraving of a skate, or stingray.
