More than 400 stencilled motifs (images) decorate the walls of a sandstone shelter below the bluff of Sandstone known as The Tombs. The Tombs once contained burial chambers for local aboriginal people. Skeletons were wrapped and bound in bark burial cylinders.
Sadly, by the end of the twentieth century, the site had been robbed of this material, leaving little evidence of an elaborate mortuary culture.

Take a close look from the boardwalk with seats. Please stay on the boardwalk.

Access is via a 2.1km one way walking track or as part of the 5.8km circuit walk.
