Summary: A small Aboriginal rock engraving site along Linden Ridge, which has six figures including fish, an echidna and a motif with two concentric circles.

Next to the Linden Ridge Firetrail is a large rock platform, which offers some views to the west. There are a number of Aboriginal engravings near the top of the platform, although they can be hard to see without the right lighting.

The most unusual figure in the group has two concentric circles, and looks a little like a net.

There are at least three crudely shaped fish.

A fourth fish could be a mundoe.

There is at least one echidna…

…and one bird or emu track.
