Summary: An Aboriginal engraving site of a man with upstretched arms near the Milyerra Road Firetrail.

A male figure with oval head and upstretched arms, this Aboriginal engraving is part of series of ten sites near the Milyerra Trail documented by Ian Sim in the 1960s. The male figure is fairly weathered.

Described in detail by McCarthy, the man is “tall, upright, half oval head, no eyes or neck, upraised arms, right one straight broadening towards end, left one slightly curved, 5 fingers on each hand, straight sided body, straight legs very wide apart, feet outward, right one flat and pointed, left one flat and conical, pointed heels and penis”.

Aboriginal Sites by National Park

The Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area protects over 3,000 known Aboriginal heritage sites, and many more which are yet to be recorded. This area includes the Blue Mountains National Park, Gardens of Stone, Wollemi National Park and Yengo National Park.
Over 40 sites have been recorded within the park; many were located along the river bank and were flooded by the building of the weir in 1938.
