Lyre Trig

Halfway up the Lyre Trig Track is this aboriginal engraving of a very large male kangaroo. It is located right at the intersection of another track that goes over to Kariong. We used the fluorescent builders twine to outline the image. The second picture gives a sense of scale to this carving.

This image shows a small figure with outstretched arms, looking across to the next high point across the valley. Many thanks to Terry Nulius for pointing us to this location. This type of small figure with raised arms always seem to be facing nearby engraving sites.

At another site near Lyre trig are these two wallabies. Unfortunately, the smaller wallaby has lost its face and forepaw. This is a false colour image.

Another site on the way up to the trig shows these two very large mundoes that are pointing the way across to the Bulgandry engraving site.

Another very extensive engraving site near the trig that is not easily accessible. This site has about 30 engravings including this large figure. His raised arm appears to be holding the moon.

    Thankyou for this suggestion. The next chance to visit this location we shall endeavour to find that fellow. There is also a child size figure just a few meters from the trig.
