Situated on a ridge parallel to the old Pacific Highway on an extensive rock plaform, the Mooney Mooney Aboriginal site has a large number of engravings. A number of engravings and stone arrangement were destroyed when the middle of the site was quarried.
At the one end of the Mooney Mooney site there are 24 engravings, including multiple kangaroos (there are eleven kangaroos in total).
Another kangaroo is quite weathered.
Another kangaroo is even more weathered, with only its head still visible.
Some very distinctive engravings are that of two large anthropomorphic figures, one of them with an elaborate head dress that has long “stalks” topped with round shapes. (Sydney Rock Art has some comprehensive information on this engraving, including comparisons to other sites with similar carvings.)
A man is shown holding a sword club (boomerang) in a throwing position: “a remarkably good depiction of the throwing posture”.
Among the southern group are nine fish.
A small goanna is one of the many animals around the site.
At the opposite end of the large site (as well as more kangaroos) are two eels, which were also described as possibly being “rainbow serpents” by McCarthy. (The Rainbow Serpent in Aboriginal dreamtime stories represents one of the great and powerful forces of nature and spirit: it “lives in the waterholes of their country, and travels between them, either under the ground or in the storm clouds when a rain storm is moving. His presence brings on the rains and if he is offended he can prevent the rains and cause drought or inundations that cause people to perish.“
