The signposted Daleys Point Aboriginal Site in Bouddi National Park has both an engraving site, and below the rock platform a shelters with cave art. Five whales dominate the rock platform, which “appears to be a whale totem site” (McCarthy). Althoug many engravings are in good condition, some are overed by lichen, and there has been some fracturing of the rock platform.
One of the whales has a number of bars across its body.
A human figure and fish overlap – it likely represents a man catching a fish.
The site also has as a leaping kangaroo – one of the many food sources depicted here.
On the edge of the platform are some axe grinding grooves.
A long shelter almost directly underneath the rock platform (protected by a steel grill) has a number of paintings in charcoal.
