Summary: An Aboriginal rock art site with two charcoal figures in a small shelter near the Bowen Hill Trail in the Wollemi NP.

At the base of a low cliff-line near the Bowen Hill Trail is a low and partly weathered shelter, which has a couple of Aboriginal cave paintings in charcoal.

One figure is fairly clear, and appears to be a bird of some sort.

Another charcoal figure is very faint, and even with image enhancement it’s hard to determine what it represents.
