On a spur between Waratah Bay and Apple Tree Bay is an interesting Aboriginal engraving site, which was documented by McCarthy in 1960. Originally described as “human figures of various kinds and sizes”. they are all engraved on one large rock platform.
Two of the men were later described as ancestral beings, and the group interpreted by McCarthy as depicting “seven initiates who had reached the stage where they had received their girdles and armlets in the presence of the spirit beings responsible for their initiation.”
Thr largest deity is 12′ 6″ tall, and the second largest of the two deities (below) is 9′ 6″ tall, with an 8-rayed headdress and three stripes from his neck to a double-line belt.
Of the other seven figures, one of the them stands separate to the rest of the group, near the edge of the rock platform.
Six of the men stand in a row, on the soping sloping edge of the rock platform.
They are are around 5’6″ to 6′ in height.
On a nearby rock is a vertical engraving of a shark, with two pairs of dorsal and ventral fins.
Additional engravings in this group include a leaping kangaroo, another man on a separate rock,
