Summary: Multiple Aboriginal stencils and an drawing of an eel (showing endoskeleton) in the Tollagong Range.

A small but deep overhang in the Tollagong Range has multiple stencils and paintings on the wall.

The most interesting motif is an eel about two metres in length, drawn like an x-ray with its bones showing. There are also multiple white hand stencils.

Some stencils are less visible, including five forearms (three of which appear joined).
