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.
