Summary: Aboriginal cave art in a long shelter below the Koolewong Ridge Firetrail. There are over 30 ideterminate motifs in charcoal and ochre.

Over 30 motifs have been recorded in a large shelter below the Koolewong Ridge Trail; unfortunately, the long and deep shelter has been used as a camping site, and rubbish detracts from the otherwise impressive cave.

The Aboriginal cave art consists of drawings in both ochre and charcoal, but while there are a large number of them they are mostly of indeterminate figures.
