Summary: An Aboriginal rock engraving site near Duckponds Ridge, which has a long line of mundoes, three emus and some other unusual figures.

Near Duckponds Ridge are some small sandstone outcrops, which contain Aboriginal rock art. The largest of the rock outcrops has a long line of seven mundoes (footprints), which point roughly north-west.

Below the mundoes (on the same rock platform) is a odd-shaped figure, which seems almost human-like but with stumpy legs.

On the next rock platform are two emus.

The third rock platform has another emu, which is a little larger than the previous pair.

Next to the emu are two more engraved figures; it’s hard to determine what they are, although one of them may be a large mundoe.

Aboriginal Sites by National Park

The Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area protects over 3,000 known Aboriginal heritage sites, and many more which are yet to be recorded. This area includes the Blue Mountains National Park, Gardens of Stone, Wollemi National Park and Yengo National Park.
Over 40 sites have been recorded within the park; many were located along the river bank and were flooded by the building of the weir in 1938.
