Off the Jerusalem Bay Track near Cowan is a group of very intriguing aboriginal rock engravings. This is a stylised carving of a lizard. This design is about a metre long and is shown here in false colour.

      The whale/human engraving is a very interesting and unique therianthropic depiction. We have intentionally chosen not to display actual engraving site locations on this website or in these comments but if you require further information about any of the engraving sites then you can contact us via the ‘Contact Us’ page.

    I have been to this site many times and always believed the first one was a penguin and the second a sealion.
