Summary: An overhang above Bantry Bay, which has sixteen well-preserved Aboriginal stencils in red ochre.

Along a cliff above Bantry Bay are multiple stencils in red ochre, all in remarkably good condition considering they are in a fairly shallow ovehang.

Aboriginal Sites by National Park

Located to the north-west of Sydney, just south of the Dharug and Yengo National Parks, Maroota has a high concentration of (known) Aboriginal sites. Many more Aboriginal heritage sites are located in the Marramarra National Park. The original inhabitants of the area were the Darug people.
Over a hundred Aboriginal sites have been recorded in the Hornsby region, with many of these in the Berowra Valley National Park and around the suburb of Berowra.
