Summary: At the end of the Slade Lookout Track is "fake" engraving of an emu or waterfowl, and a lizard that is almost directly underneath the bird.

At the end of the Slade Lookout Track is an engraving of what has been described as an emu, waterfowl or goose – it’s thought to be non-Aboriginal in origin.

Almost directly underneath is a engraving of a lizard. This may also be fake; it’s provenance has not been verified and the grooves look very smooth, rather than pecked.

Aboriginal Sites by National Park

The Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area protects over 3,000 known Aboriginal heritage sites, and many more which are yet to be recorded. This area includes the Blue Mountains National Park, Gardens of Stone, Wollemi National Park and Yengo National Park.
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.
