Summary: Two leaping kangaroos engraved on a large rock platform next to the Road to Nowhere Trail.

On a large rock platform next to the Road to Nowhere Trail are two leaping kangaroos: “Both are posed landing on their hind feet in a leap, with the rear one much more animated than the leading one” (McCarthy, 1983). Although described as “well cut and in a fair state of preservation” by Campell in 1899, they are now both fairly weathered.

The leading kangaroo, hopefully protected from mountain-bikers by a circle of stones, is in slightly better condition.

The second, or rear, kangaroo is almost possible to see without perfect lighting, and has been partly damaged.

Aboriginal Sites by National Park

Yengo National Park was an important spiritual and cultural place for the Darkinjung and Wonnarua People for thousands of years, and 640 Aboriginal cultural sites are recorded in the park and nearby areas.
Over a hundred Aboriginal sites have been recorded in the Hornsby region, with many of these in the Berowra Valley National Park and around the suburb of Berowra.
Located to the north-west of Sydney, just south of the Dharug and Yengo National Parks, Maroota has a high concentration of (known) Aboriginal sites. Many more Aboriginal heritage sites are located in the Marramarra National Park. The original inhabitants of the area were the Darug people.
