Summary: Aboriginal art site with dry charcoal sketches of what may be birds, in a large shelter above Flint and Steel Beach

A long and deep shelter above Flint and Steel Bay contains Aboriginal paintings.

The dry charcoal drawings were described as ten small birds, although it is hard to make out what the drawings represent.

Above the shelter are some more weathered caves and interesting rock formations.
