Flynn Road

The Flynn Road engraving site overlooks Glenworth Valley and Cabbage Tree Creek and is in the vicinity of Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park. The carvings here are very worn and difficult to locate. On our first walk around the site we found nothing but later in the afternoon the sun broke through the clouds and these images appeared on the rock surface.

This is a false colour composite of a small kangaroo and a swamp hen. The swamp hen is upside down to the kangaroo.

Unfortunately, the ravages of time have removed the head of this wallaby.

On the same track, but inside Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park are these engravings. The first is an emu that has been speared in the back.

Nearby to this emu are these two tiny emu motifs. This design is very similar to the large pair of emu totems at the Kariong EOC engraving site and might be a reflection of that panel.

A little way further along the track is this very worn engraving of a wallaby and a boomerang or moon motif.

    A great site many thanks, I think I have seen carvings in old rock watercourses in the Wisemans Ferry area, also I think I have stone tools in a backyard vegetable garden at Windsor NSW.
