Summary: Very weathered Aboriginal rock engravings of a kangaroo and an indeterminate object on a rock platform next to the Calabash Trail.

Next to the Calabash Trail (along Dusthole Ridge) is a large and undulating rock platform, which has a few Aboriginal engravings. The site is not signposted, so unfortunately mountain bikers inadvertently ride across the weathered engravings. (Although I’ve recorded this site as being within Marramarra National Park, it’s actually on Crown Land.)

One of the figures is a wallaby or kangaroo, which has a fairly shallow groove.

Nearby in a shallow depression is an indeterminate figure.
