Originally called the Boat Cave by locals, and later the Many Drawings Cave when documented by Val Attenbrow, this small shelter contains a number of Aboriginal drawings. (Located in the McPherson State Forest, it’s in a section that now forms part of the Mangrove Creek Dam catchment, and approval is required to access this site.)
Along the back of the shelter is a panel with male figures as well as a snake, goanna/lizard and kangaroos. The “boat cave” name comes from one of the drawings, which was thought to be (possibly) a boat, indicating it was draw after European occupation.
Some additional drawings are next to the main panel.
Research by Val Attenbrow dates deposits at Boat Cave to 2370 BP (third millennium BP), with over 20 stone artefacts being found.
