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 some carved water channels.

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).
