Summary: A man (fairly weathered) south of the Mackerel Trail.

On a a thin strip of rock surrounded by overhanging branches is the “Mackerel Trail Man”. It’s hard to make out the weathered figure, which uses natural grooves as well as carved lines.

The outline above captures the dimensions and shape of the man (who is about two metres in height). However, it’s missing his long penis, and an object protruding from near his waist.

Aboriginal Sites by National Park

Located to the north-west of Sydney, just south of the Dharug and Yengo National Parks, Maroota has a high concentration of (known) Aboriginal sites. Many more Aboriginal heritage sites are located in the Marramarra National Park. The original inhabitants of the area were the Darug people.
Yengo National Park was an important spiritual and cultural place for the Darkinjung and Wonnarua People for thousands of years, and 640 Aboriginal cultural sites are recorded in the park and nearby areas.
Over 40 sites have been recorded within the park; many were located along the river bank and were flooded by the building of the weir in 1938.
