A large rock located in the Lane Cove National Park, which has both Aboriginal and European engravings.

This picnic area in the Lane Cove National Park gets its name from the Bible’s Fifth Commandment, which was carved onto a rock by Thomas Tunbridge in the 1800s after an argument with his parents (when the area was a family farm).

Partly hidden by shrubs, the engraving site hosts Aboriginal rock art including a crescent (possibly the moon) and a sunburst.

There are also later European carvings, including a bow and arrow, cannon and sword.
