Next to the popular Bobbin Head Track is small but significant Aboriginal engraving site. There are 37 engravings over three connected groups of figures, although some are quite hard to make out without the right light.
Man and Woman
The man is five foot hight with upstretched arms, and four fingers on each hand. He has a 14-rayed headdress. The woman (3' 6" tall) partly overlaps the man.
A large twined basket, "with a handle the full width". (Next to the basket is a mundoe, or footprint.)
At the top of this rock platfiorm is an echidna, which is pointing towards the man and woman.
One of six mundoes (footprints) which crosses the site.
Possum or glider
Series 2 (Figure 4)
The signposted site is protected by a timber barrier, and is accessible by a narrow bushwalking trail from the Bobbin Head Track. (The trail to the engraving site is easy to miss – it’s about 1.6km from the start of the Bobbin Head Track.)
The figures was thought by McCarthy to represent a “mythological incident associated with the echidna totem, with the tracks of the male spirit being whose wife is holding the finest engraving of twined basket known among the engravings”.
The man is five foot hight with upstretched arms, and four fingers on each hand. He has a 14-rayed headdress. The woman (3′ 6″ tall) partly overlaps the man.
Next to the woman is a large twined basket, “with a handle the full width”. (Next to the basket is a mundoe, or footprint.)
At the top of this rock platfiorm is an echidna (described as a porcupine by Campbell in 1899), which is pointing towards the man and woman.
A line of six mundoes (footprints) crosses the site; most of them have four toes.
Series 3 (Fig 5)
A bit further down the track (away from the fireetrail) are more engravings, scattered on a series of rock surfaces. Partly covered by soil is a wallaby.
Nearby is a possum (phalanger) of Sugar Glider, which is just over two feet in length.
One if the most distinct engravings is that of a goanna, which is almost two metres in length.
Next to the goanna is a small bird.
