Summary: Axe Grinding Grooves above the Corrumbine Creek Firetrail, in Brisbane Water National Park.

Near a tesellated pavement (“Mosaic Rock”) above the Corrumbine Creek Firetrail is a man, with a tall head-dress; he has a belt across his waist.

Below the man is a narrow fish.

Scattered across the tesellated rock platfom are at least four small figures; there is a fish and what may be a club.

At the end of the platform is set of axe grinding grooves (AGGs). Some are fairly deep, and other quite shallow.

Near the AGGs is a line of small small, perfectly circular indents in the rock; they may be natural.
