Summary: The Ellis Trig North site at Cottage Point has three boomerangs, a bullroarer and a pierced seal.

A long rock platform with glimpses of Coal and Candle Creek to the north-east has a very faint engraving of three boomerangs; unusual in that the three boomerangs are sword clubs (non-returning boomerangs).
