Summary: An Aboriginal art site with weathered charcoal figures below Dusthole Ridge.

A shelter below Dusthole Ridge contains multiple charcoal figures, including two human-like figures and a wallaby or kangaroo. It’s very hard to make out all the figures, which are quite weathered and in some cases impacted by damp conditions and vegetation within the shelter. (The shelter is on Crown Land, and technically not within Marramarra National Park.)

The shelter itself is tall and long, but quite shallow, with a sandy floor.

Aboriginal Sites by National Park

Yengo National Park was an important spiritual and cultural place for the Darkinjung and Wonnarua People for thousands of years, and 640 Aboriginal cultural sites are recorded in the park and nearby areas.
Over a hundred Aboriginal sites have been recorded in the Hornsby region, with many of these in the Berowra Valley National Park and around the suburb of Berowra.
Located to the north-west of Sydney, just south of the Dharug and Yengo National Parks, Maroota has a high concentration of (known) Aboriginal sites. Many more Aboriginal heritage sites are located in the Marramarra National Park. The original inhabitants of the area were the Darug people.
