This complex Aboriginal engraving site near the Lyre Trig may have been a sacred or significant site: it was first documented by Campbeli in 1899, and later described by McCarthy as having “interesting and rare figures”.
Man with Fish or Seal
Man with outstretched arms. Touching the man is a fish or seal.
Shark or Whale
A whale or shark: it is nine feet in length, with two fins and two bars across it's body. It's holding a fish in its mouth, of which only the tail end is projecting.
Kangaroo and Fish
A "poorly shaped" kangaroo, with very broad body and posed either standing or leaping. Overlapping the kangaroo are three fish and a gnarl container.
Oval with two sets of lines (which also looks like a stingray).
Fish (5' 7" long) with long oval body, pointed head and two fins (dorsal and ventral). A "narrow elliptical figure" is attached to its head, but covered by vegetation.
Eel and Fish
Eel (6' 3" long) with no eyes and fish with broad oval body.
Eel (4' 6" long) with no eyes
Fish (4' long) with long pointed head, four dorsal fins and three central fins.
Fat bodied eel (4' 6" long). No eyes.
Axe Grinding Grooves
Axe Grinding Grooves around a small waterhole
Fish with Eggs
Narrow fish (2' 3" long) with one fin neat large tail. Below the fish is a circle of nine pits "which may represent a clutch of eggs".
Dolphin or Whale
Dolphin or whale (11' long) - it was originally described as a whale). Conical head, two eyes, 2 representing those on the lower jaw of a whale, one long dorsal, pair of pointed teats on ventral surface and Wide tail.
Man with Boomerang
Man (5' 9" tall) with half-oval head, no eyes or neck, right arm straight out and left arm upraised. He is holding a returning boomerang in his right hand and a sword club in his left half. Across his waist belt are two more boomerangs.
Fish (2' 3" long) with pointed head
At the northern-most end of the rock platform is what was initially described as a large fish or whale, and later as a shark. The marine animal is nine feet in length, with two fins and two bars across it’s body. It’s holding a fish in its mouth, of which only the tail end is projecting.
Separated from the whale/shark by some vegetation is a man with half-oval head and outspread arms. A figure described as a fish or seal is positioned vertically touching the man.
It’s also possible the figure next to the man’s head is a wallaby.
It’s also hard to make out all the additional figures that are next to the man: the largest figure is a “poorly shaped” kangaroo, with very broad body and posed either standing or leaping. Overlapping the kangaroo are three fish and a gnarl container. (Another small wallaby and fish are covered by vegetation.)
Another significant figure is is a second man, who is holding a returning boomerang in his left hand, and in his right hand a sword club. Two more boomerangs are stuck in his waist belt. Next to the man are what were described as a number of ovals.
The uppermost oval looks like a stingray, with two sets of lines connected to the oval (one of which resembles a tail).
Below the man are two large fish and two equally large eels; one fish and one eels have eyes, while the other two don’t. (The uppermost fish looks as if it’s speared, but this may be a natural line in the sandstone.)
A third fish has a long pointed head, four dorsal fins and three central fins.
A number of figures on the western (lower) part of the rock platform have been covered by vegetation, and are no longer visible. Continuing to the south, there is another eel.
The eel is near a number of axe grinding grooves, which is next to a circular waterhole. Next to the AGGs is an artificial water channel.
There’s another fish, with a long, pointed head.
Another narrow fish below this one has a large “well shaped” tail, and just below the fish is a circle of nine pits “which may represent a clutch of eggs”.
In total there are eight mundoes across the site: three of them are quite large (12″ and 15″ in length). The size of the mundes indicates that this is a sacred site, as they are likely to represent the tracks of a mythological being.
At the southern-most end of the rock platform is a dolphin or whale (it was originally described as a whale), which is eleven feet in length.
It has a long, conical head with two eyes, and a tiny circle on the outline above the eyes.
