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.
