Summary: Aboriginal rock art in a shelter above Angorawa Creek, with three charcoal motifs and two remants of hand stencils.

A deep and tall overhang above Angorawa Creek has some charcoal Aboriginal rock art and hand stencils.

One of the charcoal figures appears to be the upper half of a human; human figures with upraised arms being a common motif in a number of shelters along Angorawa Creek and New Yard Creek.

Two other motifs are less obvious.

There are also two hand stencils, although they are almost impossible to see without image enhancement.
