Summary: An Aboriginal engraving of a male figure on a long rock platform near Elephant Rock.

On a long but narrow rock platform is an Aboriginal engraving of a man. It was not recorded or mentioned in the original recordings of Aboriginal engravings around Elephant Rock, but is regarded as being a significant figure.

The grooves are fairly smooth and not very deep, but most of the figure can be discerned with the right light.
