Although not a signposted site, this extensive set of axe grinding grooves along Campfire Creek is right next to the Red Hands Cave Circuit walking track.
Scattered across the large sandstone bed of Camp Fire Creek are at least 40 grooves, formed by the Aboriginal people sharpening axes or forming axe blanks.
The grinding gooves are mostly found around the potholes in the sandstones.
A large set is along the edge of the sandstone creek bed, with some of the grooves partially submerged.
Along a tributary of Camp Fire Creek is another set of three axe grinding grooves.
Further along this same tributary is what appears to be a single grinding groove, which is submerged.
Getting to the Camp Fire Creek Grinding Grooves
The grinding grooves are almost exactly halfway along the Red Hands Cave Circuit, a 4km loop from the end of the Red Hands Firetrail. Look for a large sandstone platform along the creek.
