Summary: One of two shelters with art (SWA) above McCarrs Creek, which has a large number of hand stencils in red ochre.

A shallow sandstone overhang above McCarrs Creek contains a number of red ochre hand stencils. It’s about 600m from McCarrs Creek Site 2, which also has an impressive number of hand stencils.

There are about 20 hand stencils, most of which are remarkably well-preserved considering that the shelter does not offer a lot of protection against the elements.

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.
Over a hundred Aboriginal sites have been recorded in the Hornsby region, with many of these in the Berowra Valley National Park and around the suburb of Berowra.
