A narrow ledge at the foot of Washtub Creek near Berowra Waters has a number of Aboriginal engravings; the creek derives it’s name from European settlers using the circular rockpools to wash clothes.
There’s many different species of fish, including a line of six bream, a flathead and a narrow mullet (there are 15 fish engravings in total).
The line of bream is being attacked by a bird, described by McCarthy as a shag (cormorant).
A composite image by Sydney Rock Art better captures this scene.
Above the fish is an animal, described as either a “native cat” (numbat or quoll) or a possum.
Below Washtub Gully and just above the low tide mark is a small shelter, with a two fish painted in red ochre visible amongst much recent graffiti.
