Summary: An Aboriginal engraving site on the ridge above Lobster Beach in Bouddi NP, which has a man, a fish and what may be a mantra ray.

Along Lobster Ridge (a ridge above Lobster Beach) is long rock platform, which has several Aboriginal rock engravings. On it’s own, a small distance from two larger figures, is a small fish which is very crudely pecked.

A little further on a darker section of sandstone is a man, who also has fairly distinct peck marks.

Near the man is a large, figure which has what appears to be multiple fins or rays.

It’s perhaps a manta ray; the closest figure I can compare this with a figure described as a manta ray in Muogamarra (Peats Crater Trail Manta Ray and Men)

Many of the grooves are very distinct, but some appear make use of natural lines in the sandstone, making to hard accurately outline the entire figure.
