Two leaping kangaroos, part of an emu and with rays on his head forms part of what may represent a hunting scene near the Myall Trail

A long rock platform at the western end of the Myall Trail has a group of engravings.

The scene was described by Fred McCarthy as representing the killing of an emu and the sighting of a pair of kangaroos or wallabies.

The two “leaping kangaroos or wallabies” are still fairly distinct.

Near the two kangaroos is the “unusual figure of a man, life-size with long curved hair or headdress, with three fingers on one hand and two large fingers on the other hand”.

The emu, “poorly drawn, as though depicting a dead bird” is not really recognizable – other than its leg.
