Summary: A quite clearly defined kangaroo, and some smaller engravings, next to the Max Allen Track on a small rock

Located right next to the Max Allen Track is a quite clearly defined kangaroo, which was re-cut at some stage with a steel tool. It is unusual as both upper and lower limbs of the animal are shown, which is stylistically different to most macropod engravings north of the Georges River.
