Summary: Aboriginal engraving of a man with upraised arms, on a small rock platform next to Mona Vale Road.

On the opposite side of Mona Vale Road to the Echidnas and Snake is a man with upraised arms, on a small rock platform. It’s possible that the engraving site extended across Mona Vale Road, alhough (unlike the engravings on the other side of the busy road), this site was never documented by Sim and was only recently recorded as part of the roadworks heritage report.
