On a a remote spur above Cowan Creek is a small rock platform with an Aboriginal engraving of what is most likely a bandicoot. It looks like a numbat (from its stripes and stance), but numbats were only found in the north-west of NSW. It’s been suggested that “it’s more likely to be a banded bandicoot (not extinct from the area) or a bandicoot-type animal with totemic barring. It’s remarkably well preserved” (Steve Chapple).
There’s two adjacent engravings, which were partially covered. They depict a female figure and a male spirit figure: the enhanced image below shows the full detail of this amazing site (photo from Rock Art of the Sydney Basin).
