Summary: An Aboriginal engraving site above Green Point Creek near Pearl Beach, which has very weathered carvings.

Above Green Point Creek next to a spring-fed tributary is a long rock platform, which contains very weathered Aboriginal rock engravings.

Many of the figures are unusual – or not immediately identifiable. A relatively well defined fish overlaps another indeterminate figure.

Nearby is another very weathered fish.

Two adjacent figures look like a poorly shaped wallaby or kangaroo, and what be a bird.

There’s a large U-shape figure.

An oval-shaped figure may be a stingray, although the curved tail is unusual for such a marine creature.
