It’s surprising that this Aboriginal engraving site wasn’t documented by one of the early Australian anthropologists; it was only recorded in the 1980s, although initials chiselled into nearby rocks date back to the 1940s. The large rock platform is above Cotton Tree Creek, which flows into Cotton Tree Bay on Cowan Creek.
At the furthest (easternmost) end of the rock platform is what is likely to be a figure of a whale, which is six metres in length and somewhat oddly shaped.
Next to this whale is another whale.
The second whale is also about six metres in length, with an over-sized left fin.
Next to the two whales (and what may be a very indistinct third whale or shark) is a figure of a man. He is wearing a headdress and has two lines across his waist.
Below the man’s right foot is a crescent-shaped figure, which may be a boomerang.
Below the man’s left foot is an indeterminate shap
Further down the rock below the man is an eel.
At the western end of the rock platform are some smaller figures – an eel, and two fish.
Perhaps the most spectacular aspect of this site is the number of axe grinding grooves (AGGs). There are at least 40 along the creek, in a long line,
Near the axe ginding grooves is a grooved water channel.
The creek drops over a ledge to another rock pool below the engraving site, which has another two clearly defined axe grinding grooves.
