A large whale, fish and three kangaroos on three rock platforms near Woy Woy Road

Not far from Woy Woy Road, between the Bulgandry Aboriginal Site and Bulgandry 2 are three small engraving sites. The first has a whale on a large outcrop.

This engraving was documented by both W.D. Campbell (Plate 27, Fig 6) and later by Ian Sim (Group 163, Series 1). The carving is quite worn, and the lower fin is no longer visible (photo below right is a false colour composite image by Sydney Rock Art).

Nearby are two more sites: one has two fish and a leaping kangaroo, and the other a pair of wallabies.
