A series of rock ledges with 24 engravings across three sites near the Milyerra Trail

The first of three rock ledges has a waterhole near the middle, three axe grinding grroves, and 16 engravings along its length (including a fish, multiple birds, a headless kangaroo and a set of 15 ovals).

Many of these engravings (Sim Group 167, Series 6) are very hard to make out: a small engraving of a bird (there are two birds; the other is much fainter) is very clear.

A set of “fifteen small circles” look almost natural after hundreds of years of erosion from water seeping across the rock.

A bit further on the next rock platform has a large kangaroo (Sim Group 167, Series 6), which is faint and quite hard to make out.
