A short walk off the main gorge track leads to a 62 metre long sandstone wall with over 2000 engravings, ochre stencils and free-hand paintings. With boomerangs, hands, feet, stone axes, shields, nets, and animal tracks.

The netting means that ancestors have been buried in this area
What lies within? the entrance to the very spiritual Aboriginal place.
