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.
