Above the Gosford Railway Dams in Narara is an Aboriginal engraving site and a long wave-like shelter with art, both only (relatively) recently documented.

A rock platform above the Gosford Railway Dam at Narara has a number of scattered figures, that were only recorded and sketched in the 1970s.

Three figures are still fairly distinct: one of them is a man with a belt, who has been speared.

A long eel is more weathered, and hard to see without highlighting.

There’s also a solitary and fairly large fish nearby.

Above the engraving site is a long, north-facing cave which contains some art.

The most obvious art is a number of white hand stencils.

There are also some charcoal drawings, although some are affected by graffiti and some may not be Aboriginal, but added later.
