Summary: A very small and low shelter with a single Aboriginal red ochre hand stencil.

Just outside the Gardens of Stone State Conservation Area is a low shelter, which has a single Aboriginal hand stencil in red ochre.

It’s the only stencil (or the only one remaining) along a thin strip of rock, which has multiple patches of red ochre.

It’s an unusual rock art site, in that the shelter is very low and has very few surfaces suitable for art or stencils.

A nearby site has faint figures and lines in white and red.
