Summary: An Aboriginal engraving of a woman with upstretched arms, on a small and isolated rock platform.

On one of many scattered rock surfaces in a grassy meadow near the Bowen Hill Trail is an Aboriginal rock engraving of a woman.

Most of the figure (which is just over a metre in height.) is visible, although the left part of her body (breast and leg) are weathered. Both arms are upstretched.

On a separate, nearby rock surface is what may be an axe grinding groove.
