Summary: An Aboriginal engraving of a man peeing in a waterhole, some hands and fish on a small rock platform below West Head Road.

A small rock ledge near West Head Road has some small potholes, which usually hold water. Around them are carved water channels – similar to the ones opposite the the Waratah Trail where two potholes have channels around them.

There are a few engravings along the rock, the most obvious being a “man peeing into waterhole” (to be more accurate, the lower portion of a man peeing into a waterhole).

Near the potholes are engravings of two hands.

At the top of the platform, a short distance away, is a fish.

There are very filtered views from another nearby rock platform – many years ago, there was an official path down to what then a marked lookout.
