Traversed by the Milyerra Road Fire Trail, a large, tesselated rock platform contains a number of weathered engravings

Traversed by the Milyerra Road Fire Trail, a large, tesselated rock platform contains a number of weathered engravings (mountain bikes and bulldozer tracks have damaged some of the engravings – and two figures recorded in 1899 have been worn away completely).

Many figures are scattered around the site, documented by W.D. Campbell and Ian Sim – although of the 15 motifs recorded by Sim in 1969 (black outline in the site sketch below) , the much earlier recording by Campbell in 1899 includes less than half of these.

Some of the more obvious figures include a handprint.

A number of mundoes around the site are arranged in to two long lines.

There are three fish around the site, although some are hard to make out.

In a natural depression in the rock is what looks like a boomerang, but may be an eel.
