Summary: Partly covered by silt, an Aboriginal engraving of a kangaroo is on a small outcrop with a view of Mount Wondabyne.

This Aboriginal engraving site was first documented by Ian Sim, who described it as a “Figure of a kangaroo engraved in a shallow depression on top of a high outcrop”. It faces the distant Mount Wondabyne, its view now slightly marred by an electricity pylon.

The tail and back of the kangaroo is still fairly visible – but a large part of its body has been silted over.
