This long and thin platform, surrounded by thick scrub, has over 60 Aboriginal engravings and axe grinding grooves first recorded by McCarthy in 1941. McCarthy initially wrote: “No particular meaning may be attached to this group, although it appears to illustrate a myth… It may represent a picture of a very good camping place”. He later described the site in his Catalogue of Rock Engravings as probably representing a good hunting place: “Two hunting incidents are shown, one of a woman killing a bird, the other of men hunting echidna”.
A leaping wallaby, 4' 6" long with a pointed triangular face, no eyes, one ear, conical foreleg pointed forward, convex back, concave belly line continued to incurved and truncated hind leg, straight tail in line with back.
A bird, 15" long, with conical head no eyes, round ended wings straight out from the body, right wing long than left, conical rump, pair of conical legs, posed with wings open and about to lift from the ground.
Two of three adjacent eels; these are 2'6" and 2'9" long. One has three bars across its body, and the other five bars
The third eel is 2'6" long, with no bars across its body
One of five ovals around this part of the rock platform
Woman with Digging Stick
A woman (3' tall) is holding a long digging stick (4'6" long). The woman has a half-oval head, two eyes (vertical on left side of head), slightly curved arms half upraised, five fingers on right hand, round-ended left arm, rounded breasts pointing outward, incurved sides of body and outspread thin legs.An intagliated vagina projects beyond the outline of her crotch.
A bird (4' long) with a long beak, oval head, no eyes, oval body and short bent leg with one toe.
Three ovals (23" and 24" long)
Axe Grinding Grooves
Eleven axe grinding grooves next to a small pothole
A shield (4'10" long) with two transverse lines
Head of an eel
Man (4'3" tall) with half-oval head, no eyes, 5-rayed headdress, long neck, straight arms upraised, short straight legs wide apart, rounded ended right foot outward, left leg truncated, big conical penis with a bar in the middle.
Echidna (3'10" long) with long pointed head, no eyes, humped back, rounded rump, conical fin-like legs.
One of a pair of echidna (2'10" long) with conical head, pointed vertical foreleg, pointed hind leg, pointed rump, no eyes
At the western end of the platform, with the end of its tail now partlty covered by soil, is a leaping wallaby.
Nearby is a bird, described by McCarthy as “posed with wings open and about to lift from the ground after running a few steps.
Also partly obscured by encroaching vegetation are three eels, which are about three feet long; one has no five bars aross its body another three bars and the third eel has no bars.
The two eels which are in line with each have very distunct “peck marks”, and were described as “perfect examples of the punctured outline”.
The third eel (which has no bar across its body) is less distinct, but also bears clear peck marks.
A second wallaby is also near the edge of the rock platform, which was described as “posed as though feeding, lying down or dead”. Above its back is one mundoe, which is part of a line of 14 mundoes; they point to the Elvina Aboriginal Site.
This section of the rock platform has five ovals, which may represent camps.
The eastern side of the rock platform has some more interesting figure including a woman who is holding a digging stick.
The woman is about three feet tall, and much shorter thn the 4″6′ digging stick; she was described in much detail by McCarthy but some of these details can no longer be seen due to weathering.
Next to the woman is what is what McCarthy described as a bird: “probably a dead duck or shag killed by the man with her digging stick”.
Continuing east long the platform are five more ovals.
Near the centre of the platform are eleven axe grinding grooves, next to a small pothole.
A shield at the edge of the platform has two transverse lines.
There’s are two men towards the eastern end of the rock platform: the first has upraised arms and is wearing a headdress, although the five-rayed headdress is very hard to make out.
The second man seems to have weathered significantly, with many of the features described by McCarthy no longer evident. His legs are pointing to the first man, although not all of his lower body is visible. Both his arms are outspread.
Three echidns are just beyond the two men, all of them similarly shaped with conicals heads and legs pointed backwards, to indicate they are walking.
