Summary: A number of charcoal figures, many of them wallabies or kangaroos, along the back of wall of a long shelter above Fitzerald Creek.

A long shelter in the Warrimoo area, which contains multiple charcoal figures mainly on the smooth panels on the back wall. (The site is located on Crown Land, which is largely surrounded by Blue Mountains National Park.)

At one end of the long shelter are some elongated, weathered figures.

Next to these is an interesting combination of figures, which includes overlapping wallabies or kangaroos, and what seems to be one or two eels.

To the right of these motifs is another interesting panel, which has multiple animal figures, including more wallabies/kangaroos. Unfortunately the bottom of the panel has suffered from weathering.

Aboriginal Sites by National Park

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.

The Blue Mountains National Park (and surrounding areas along the Great Western Highway) is thought to have over a thousand indigenous heritage sites, although much of the park has not been comprehensively surveyed. The Aboriginal rock sites in the Blue Mountains include grinding grooves, stensils, drawing and rock carvings.
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.
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.
