Above the Pacific Motorway is a “fine portrayal of a mother and young emu”. The site was first recorded in 1960 by Fred McCarthy, and an archeological survey for the construction of the F3 freeway (now the M1 Motoway) recommended that the site be protected.
The adult emu is about 2,5m in length, and is “standing with its body parralel to the ground and its neck and head upward”. It has an unusually big foot, which is very weathered. The young emu is also quit weathered; it is just over a metre long.
